Our different gospel

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 22 (day seven)
“All who go down to the dust kneel before him–those who cannot keep themselves alive.”  (vs 29)  It is a different gospel than the world expects.  Different, even, from what some believers think.  NOT a guarantee that we will be pain free and death exempt.  Something more powerful.  A harder and better promise than we imagine.  God will never leave us!  On the other side of the worst experiences of life, we will know His faithfulness!  Like the resurrection of Christ, the believer is promised eventual victory by the very power of God.  1 Peter 5:10 says, “AFTER you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.”  Our gospel teaches people facing death,  those who cannot keep themselves alive, to confidently kneel before a faithful God.  He will keep His promises.  We can trust Him.  Even in the most painful moments of life.
