March 10, 2017 Tests/Trials/Tribulations

God will either pull you out of it, have you go around it, or take you through it. However He deems best.

If He takes you through it, know that suffering is all part of the sanctification process.

From the Bible – 2 Tim 2:3 Endure suffering along with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.

Also from the Bible: Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

And another verse from God’s Word: James 1:2 My brothers and sisters, consider it nothing but joy when you fall into all sorts of trials, (Believe this by faith, not feelings, not by sight)….Count it all joy – why, because God says so    (As God healed my heart, as I cried and cried, I said out loud, only by pure faith, “I count the totality of this trial all joy, I count the totality of this trial all joy, I count the totality of this trial all joy” I could not feel joy, just pain. I count not see joy, just tears of sorrow. I did not know when the trial would end. I had to keep going by faith. I did what the bible said to do (I count it all joy, but not perfectly), and I can tell you, God turned a decade of painful tears – into all Joy! I faced the trauma of the past, His grace was there for me, and carried me to the other side!) He healed my heart!

God was faithful to me, and He will be faithful to you. 

(PS Those who sow in tears, shall reap in joy! Psalm 126:5) God’s Word is true.

God is a promise keeper. He can be trusted when you face testings & trials & tribulations in life.
