Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Those who are insulted and persecuted because of Christ do not find joy in the persecution itself, but they are reminded that as they drink the cup of His sufferings, their patience springs from within their hearts and thus provides for them strength to endure suffering. They find a new intimacy with Christ and have the potential to be blessed because of bearing testimony for Him.
Only Christ can prepare your heart for a godly response to those who delight in causing you pain and suffering. Place your burdens before Him and seek the joy of perseverance--a blessing Christ wants to give to those who suffer in His name. ask the Lord to prepare you to bear your testimony faithfully regardless of circumstances that unfold to make that journey difficult.
