Affliction. Hard knocks. Calamity. A Catastrophe. Disaster. Suffering. They all total up to adversity.
Fact is you will be afflicted in every way. BUT, after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish YOU. (1 Peter 5:10)
Remember, brave men rejoice in adversity, just as brave soldiers triumph in war. (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold--though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. (1 Peter 1:6-7)
