A Daily Devotion for Monday, February 14


1 Peter 5:10


And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

I know there is a definition for the word glory, but the more I read this word in scripture, the more complex and elusive this definition is for me. Glory is not like an ingredient in a recipe, because we don’t supply it ourselves. It comes from God, and He shares it with us when we take Him into our hearts. It can shine from us like a light to others, but we do not experience it without God.

Father God, I know I am too caught up in the literal today. Help me to feel and experience your glory today. Help me to understand. Amen

1 Peter 5:10 Peter explains that now that we are believers. Any suffering will eventually end and that the promise of restoration and strength is there for us all. This is God’s promise to all who put their faith in him. Prayer: gracious God, your kindness is never ending. Our hope is built on these words of Peter. Thank you. Amen

1 Peter 5:10

When reading this verse, The Book of Job reminds me of the greatest suffering. Often we wonder why God allows something, and we question or doubt God’s goodness, without seeing the bigger picture. The Book of Job teaches us to trust God under all circumstances. We must trust God, not only WHEN we do not understand, but BECAUSE we do not understand. The psalmist tells us, As for God, His way is perfect (Psalm 18:30). If God’s ways are perfect then we can trust whatever He does—and whatever He allows—is also perfect. Many times I wonder how this is even possible, but my mind is not God’s mind. It is true that I can’t expect to understan…

We belong to God. He called us to his eternal glory through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross. It is though Jesus that we become who we are meant to be. We suffer in this life in order to learn. This suffering is never in vain and will teach us how much God loves us in the end.


Dearest Lord, thank you for the grace you have given me in order for me to share in the glory of Jesus. I pray that…

1 Peter 5:10

On tackling the readings this week. I am persuaded the word “glory“ should be reserved for God, the works of God and our existence with God after our earthly death. The term used in the context of military victory or earthly accomplishments seems misplaced. Today’s verse is yet another reference to our lives being a relatively short period of time as we understand it, characterized by suffering, only to be restored for eternity by and in God’s glory. This serves as a reminder to me to try to be vigilant for and not miss the opportunity to find rest in the thin places in this life where heaven and earth are in close harmony. These are the…
