The Fiery Trial - 12
1 Peter 4:12-19
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
These words of comfort in 1 Peter 4:19 give us direction in handling our suffering with Christ (Romans 8:18-23). In this final verse, we conclude this passage of verses with a firm understanding that we must suffer according to God's will (1 Peter 5:10). Above all, the Will of God is a paradigm that sits on top of all that we should think, dream, have, or do, not our will but Your Will be done, O Lord (Luke 22:42-44). Through all suffering, only the suffering for the cause of Christ is worthy to be considered righteous by God, and our suffering with Him must be committed to the keeping of our Faithful Creator (Psalm 138:8, 1 Peter 4:19). What's important to you, your will, or God's Will?
Ruach HaKodesh, Holy Spirit - Psalm 51:11; we thank You for being our Holy Spirit. We praise you for allowing us to suffer for Your Will. We declare and decree the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who find the suffering according to the Will of God; so that, we who are committed to our Faithful Creator will be kept by Him. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with the anointing of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
