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
When pressure builds and it’s hard to handle life on our own, God hears our prayers for mercy and reminds us who’s in charge of ALL things. He helps us handle our trials and remember to be faithful to Him.
He nurtures our faithfulness. God longs for us to BELIEVE more so we will worry less. He handles our days and sets the stage for what’s to come. He carries us through the uncertainties of life and provides STRENGTH for our weakness.
God uses trials to help us welcome HOPE. It’s what we need in EVERY situation. He opens our hearts for praise as we’re reminded why we are not alone. He helps us learn to be patient as we walk with Jesus and witness what happens when we TRUST.
God will grow our faith so we will remember better days WILL come. He will guide and provide as we remain strong in the love of His greatness. Our trials will NOT last forever! FAITH will help us remember this truth... God is our refuge and strength. He will always be ready to help in times of trouble.
Dear God, Thank you for the presence of Your love. Forgive us when we allow trials to rob our PEACE. We will trust You with all of our hearts and patiently wait to be led by Your greatness. Thank you for helping us COPE with HOPE. We will surrender our worries when trials come and remember who IS handling our days. Thank you for the power of Your LOVE. It gives us courage and strength as we remain faithful and TRUST in You. Thank you, Lord. Amen
