- Afflictions - Of saints, are but temporary
Afflictions - Of saints, are but temporary
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
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.
