“But even if you suffer for doing right God will reward you for it, so don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.” – 1Peter 3:14
You who dare to stand for something will have enemies. Enemies cause much suffering. Still Peter instructs us here not to worry or be afraid. That sounds like a big assignment to me.
God will reward you if you suffer for doing right. How does God reward us in such cases? Often others see and are blessed because of that one who did right. Because you refuse to go the wrong way others will dare to do the same. You can be an inspiration. Also God shows favor on his saints and blessings will indeed come. Perhaps these will be in the form of met needs. Since we know God keeps his word you can be confident that God sees and God rewards.
Do not worry saying, “what if.” Those two words indicate a lack of trust. Do not be afraid. God has got this. Walk through your suffering with the Lord who understands suffering. Bring him honor by how you endure in the time of suffering. Yes and amen.
