Persecution?

Have you ever found yourself being persecuted because you were a Christian? There can be a lot of persecution and struggles for those that are in the faith. If you are being persecuted for your faith, don’t give up!

Matthew 5:10-11, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." If you are being persecuted, take heart! God, the one who really matters, is caring for you. Your troubles may seem great, but if you look to God, you can find rest in Him. You can find comfort in Him. God’s love is powerful enough to sustain you. Romans 8:35 says, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" The answer is nothing. Nothing can separate you from God’s love.

If you are experiencing hard times, look to Christ. Go to God and ask Him to strengthen you for the trials you are experiencing. Life may seem hard, but if you will trust God to comfort you, He will. God says that nothing can separate you from His love. Romans 8 continues when it says, "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." Christ loved you so much He died for you. His love can strengthen you for any trial. It may seem impossible, but our God is a God of the impossible. He can make you more than a conqueror in your situation. So ask Him!

"Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." – Matthew 5:12
