Later You Will Understand

You shall see the reason of all the trials and temptations, all the dark and comfortless hours, all the long and tedious conflicts and you will be convinced that not a sigh, not a single uneasy thought, was allotted to you without a wise and gracious design!

[Edward Payson]


John 13:7 ... Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

Hebrews 12:10-11 ... For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.  Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

1 Peter 4:12-13 ... Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.❤
