1 PETER 5:10-11

To each of you LADIES who opened up and shared what was on your heart last night... THANK YOU! I truly feel as if GOD has placed this Bible study in my life for a reason! Last night I was REALLY feeling it!

This scripture was shared last night and was brought to my attention again today by a sweet sweet sister :)

I always enjoy reading from various translations... Maybe that is because I have a hard time grasping things from time to time and quite possibly because I need to hear things multiple times before they sink in....

So here it is in just a few different translations:

1 Peter 5:10-11

10And 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. 11To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

He Gets the Last Word
8-11Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You're not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It's the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won't last forever. It won't be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.


10And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.
11To Him be the dominion (power, authority, rule) forever and ever. Amen (so be it).

10 In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation. 11 All power to him forever! Amen.


10But God shows undeserved kindness to everyone. That's why he appointed Christ Jesus to choose you to share in his eternal glory. You will suffer for a while, but God will make you complete, steady, strong, and firm. 11God will be in control forever! Amen

I know that you may be a strictly "NIV kind of girl".........but I found it REALLY powerful and reaffirming to hear this message AGAIN and AGAIN in different translations... they ultimately mean the same thing! WOW! Powerful stuff!
