And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18 This has been the hope of the grieving and the joyous, prophets and martyrs, the poor and the wealthy alike: God said it, so it will happen. Since Abraham believed, and it was credited to him as righteousness in Genesis 15:6, it has helped many die not seeing what they hoped for, but ushered them in to Eternity. God keeps His word. We worry about many things, but if we get our comfort from the word, knowing that every thing God says He will do will be accomplished, we can cast our cares on Him, for He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7). In life, we are promised troubles; we know we have an enemy who seeks to Kill, Steal, and Destroy, but nothing shall prevail against the Church of Jesus Christ. In the Revelation, many who gave their lives for Christ ask the same question many of us here do: When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been. (Revelation 6:9-11) The Lord is the Righteous Judge. He will make all things right. He said it. It is enough. As Believers, we can get distracted by what is seen, but let us not let the wind and the waves keep us from walking on Water when Jesus calls us out! No matter what we face in this life, the Lord will prevail! He promised good to those who He loves and are called according to His purpose. Let us, then, whether we're suffering or not, count the Word of God to be all joy. God said it would all be made right, and it shall. We need to return to the Word of the Lord. To Believing God, not just in words, but in actions, that we may be Righteous before Him always. Let that be enough to go on. Trust in God. He will accomplish what He says.
