I love these verses...having recently understood ( a little better) how wonderful and powerful God's grace really is towards those who believe in Jesus.
And understanding the times and trials that many are facing or will face...also I have found out by experience (a little better anyway) how really powerful God's grace really is towards them that believe in Jesus Christ. These words help me to see that if I go through rough waters I am not out of God's will nor beyond His reach to help me and keep my soul.
But may the God of all grace,
who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus,
after you have suffered a while,
perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
To Him be the glory
forever and ever.
