Directions to Be Established
Saturday, May 30
“The God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the power forever and ever” (vv. 10-11).
How many times do we read the manual when we buy something new? Not very often. And then only when the product is not working or we don’t know how to put it together.
A Japanese chef friend of mine told me every time he receives a new gift, before even tries to use it, he always reads the manual first.
We will suffer a bit in this world, but if we read Peter’s manual we will be established and made strong under the mighty hand of the Lord.
Help us humble ourselves, resist the devil, learn, be disciplined, keep the faith, and be alert. And then we will be restored, strengthened, and established by you, loving Lord, who deserves all the glory and honor, forever and ever. Amen.
