1 Peter 2:19-25 says, "for God is pleased when, conscious of his will, you patiently endure unjust treatment. Of course, you get no credit for being patient if you are beaten for doing wrong. But if you suffer for doing good and endure it patiently, God is pleased with you."
That's right. He's pleased with the fact that you didn't abandon Him when the going got tough. You did just the opposite -- you ran towards Him. You ran into His loving arms. And He is pleased with you for that. Although you may have had your struggles and fallen short sometimes, God loves the after-fact -- He loves that you changed for the better. You became more humble and you live for Him now more than anybody else. So, continue your walk in His mighty power, because God approves of what you’re doing and how you’re living.
