|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
19 So if you find life difficult because you're doing what God said, take it in stride. Trust him. He knows what he's doing, and he'll keep on doing it.
19 So then, those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
