And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Remember now the Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you.
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.
2Peter 3:9, 1Peter 5:10, Romans 5:3-5 and John 16:33
