1 Peter 1:1-2
V 2 According to the foreknowledge of God the Father…
How comforting it is to know that God knows our pain and suffering? He knows what paths we will travel and every minute He is preparing us to make the trip. He wants our pain and suffering to grow us, and not to be went through in vain. He wants us to become more like Jesus in the end. And through it all, He is very aware of exactly how much we can handle; He constantly sprinkles us with grace to make the trip bearable. How comforting is it to know that if we have to walk hard paths God has gone before us to prepare the way?
