First Peter, chapter 3, and verses 13 to 15, “And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. ‘And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.’ But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.”
There are seasons in history where God’s people have had to endure hardness. We are again at such a time. Though other circumstances might be against us; you and I have an inner hope and joy that could never be taken away from us. In fact, it is so pronounced that very, very soon others will be asking us where they can get it, too.
Until that time, it’s time to pray.
