UNDER CONSTRUCTION

“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].” (1 Peter 5:10 KJV)

A home is not built over night.  A foundation has to be laid before the house will stand. Every single piece of the house has to be carefully designed, thought out, constructed, and set in place before the house can reach its completion. The building process can be painful.   Obviously, there are obstacles along the way. There are delays and storms. How good does it feel to walk into a new home or a newly renovated home when it is complete?   Allow the Lord time to complete what He started in you. 

BUT GOD!
It is always God!
It is God of ALL GRACE. 
It is God of all…
Good-will
Lovingkindness
Unmerited favor
Kindness that bestows what is undeserved
It is God.

God has called us…
God has invited us…
God has called us by name…
into His eternal glory
by Christ Jesus

After you have suffered…
Been affected
Been afflicted
Undergone

Awhile…
A little
Small
Shortly
Slightly
Briefly

God of all grace will…

Perfect you
Put you in order
Mend what was broken
Repair you
Restore you
Make you what you ought to be
Complete You

God of all favor will…

Establish…
Confirm
Strengthen
Firmly Place
Fix
Steadfastly set your face
Turn you resolutely in a certain direction

God of all loving kindness…

Strengthen…
Make you strong body and soul

God of all unmerited favor will…

Settle…
Found
Ground
Lay your foundation

I enCOURAGE you in the middle of your passion, suffering and waiting to hold on. You are under construction.  God has got you in His mighty right hand.  He is an amazing project manager. Your current suffering is only going to last a little while on His construction timeline.  He will use it to perfect, stablish, strengthen, and settle you.  You are complete in Him.
