These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So, when your faith remains strong through many 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 1:7-9 NLT
When circumstances challenge us with trials, Jesus helps us manage our days. He draws us closer to God and helps us experience the goodness of mercy and grace. He reminds us to TRUST in God’s promises and remember where HOPE is found.
The greatest test of FAITH comes when we allow God to lead us through the uncertainties of life. We were never promised to live without troubles. As we bravely surrender the worry of doubt, Jesus helps us welcome His PEACE.
He knows about suffering. Christ helps us release what we don’t have to hold. He took the pain of our own when He died on the cross and rose again. He holds us together when we're tethered to the heart of His LOVE and BELIEVE in God’s promises.
Jesus will help us surrender what needs to be gone so we will make room for PEACE. He will carry our burdens, comfort us in time of need and help us recognize WHY we need Him. We will face challenges along the way, but we will never have to face them alone.
God knows what we need to faithfully follow Christ. He will guide and provide as we recognize His authority to witness what happens when we PRAY. We must stop being afraid to let God have control and BELIEVE in His ability to take care of each one of us.
He will help us find courage and calm. God will grow our FAITH as we TRUST in Him. He will help us recognize life will be easier if we stop trying to handle it alone. Aren’t we blessed to have a Father who knows our hearts? He will never stop working for the GOOD.
Dear God, thank you for waking us in Your presence. Forgive us when we allow trials to rob our HOPE. We will trust You with all of our hearts and welcome Your presence of PEACE. Thank you for what happens when we TRUST in You. YOU are deserving of PRAISE every day of our lives! We will cling to Your promises as we journey with FAITH and remember YOU know our hearts. Help us remain faithful ALL of our days as we gratefully follow Jesus. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
