These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold. And, your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor, on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. 1 Peter 1:7

God watches how we handle the circumstances in our lives. He longs to lift us with arms of strength, when pressure builds and we need to be held by His holiness. But sometimes, we try to deal with difficulties on our own and forget how it feels to let Christ lead us. 

The Bible says, “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4

God nurtures our faithfulness. He uses moments of surrender to fill us with the presence of His peace. And in troubled times of need, He reminds us who's in charge of ALL things. As we learn to TRUST, He leads us past obstacles and helps us handle rocky roads that are difficult to travel. He prepares us to discover how it feels to be guided. 

If we humble our hearts and allow ourselves to be led, God will help us recognize He is with us, no matter what! And if we choose to TRUST in the timing of His will, He will strengthen us and prepare us for what’s to come. He will guide us toward better days. We are so lucky to have a Father who knows how to provide everything we need. We must always trust in Him. 

Dear God, Thank you for the presence of Your love. Forgive us when we allow trials to weaken our faith. We will trust in You and patiently wait to be led by Your greatness. In moments to be guided by the hope of our faith, we will surrender the worry of our wonder and find reason to remember You are handling every single thing. Thank you, Lord for Your never ending love. We will choose to remain faithful and gratefully remember; YOU will ALWAYS know how to handle our days. Amen
