When trials confront us we blame ourselves or others for the troubles we face; We don’t realize that God has brought us into a place of struggle. Sometimes, He brings us to a place of desperation where we feel helpless and hopeless. But our faith can be greatly encouraged when we understand that He has a purpose in it all. “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy” (1 Peter 4:12-13).
He wants you to emerge from your trials stronger in character, stronger in faith, stronger in Jesus. Because He loves you!
