1 Peter 5:10 KJV
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.
Heavenly Father, I come before you as a humble servant, placing before your throne those who are seeking your truth. I plead, Lord, you will fill them with courage that they may be strong when the enemy brings before them his subtleties, temptations, admonitions, brutalities. These will come in the form of rebuttals, criticism, rejections, and, most of all, distractions. I ask Father for your intercession and strengthening that they may go through these future days with courage knowledge discernment and understanding of your promise that not one hair on our head will be harmed if we walk in your Laws. This I pray in the name of Yeshua and all of God’s children say Amen and Amen.
In conclusion, Perfect implies your progress towards perfection. Stablish imports the curing of your natural lightness and inconstancy.
Strengthen has respect to the growth of graces, especially where weakest and lowest. Settle signifies to fix upon a sure foundation and may refer to Him who is the Foundation and Strength of believers.
These expressions show that perseverance and progress in grace are first to be sought after by every Christian. The power of these doctrines on the hearts and the fruits in the lives, showed who are partakers of the grace of God.
The cherishing and increase of Christian love, and of affection one to another, is no matter of empty compliment, but the stamp and badge of Jesus Christ on his followers.
Others may have a false peace for a time, and wicked men may wish for it to themselves and to one another; but theirs is a vain hope and will come to nought. All solid peace is founded on Christ and flows from him.
Robert a humble obedient servant to Yeshua and his Father in heaven Yahewa.
