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 manage our lives. He handles every moment and knows what we hold inside. He lifts us with arms of strength when pressure builds and we need to be reminded to be faithful and TRUST.
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 faithfulness. He uses moments of surrender to fill us with peace. In troubled times of need, He reminds us who's in charge of ALL things. He guides and provides for our days. God arms us with everything we need to be reminded we’re not alone.
When we humble our hearts to be led by the power of His strength, God will use trials in our lives to grow us. He will help us believe in the power of His authority to diminish weary thoughts. God will remind us there will never be a day without the goodness of His love when we choose to occupy hopefulness.
God will cover us with mercy, love and amazing grace. We must TRUST in the power of His will. He will place joy in our hearts and show us how to welcome perfect peace as we journey with Jesus. We can face each day with the promise of better things to come. God WILL bless the lives of those who obey and respond to His nudging. He will show us how it feels to be blessed with a grateful heart.
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. As we are guided by the love of our faith, help us surrender the worries of our hearts and find reason to remember You WILL always take care of us and those we love. Thank you foe knowing what is BEST for our days. Amen
