We all have them. And they’re necessary. He is faithful to use them to make us into who we are called to be. He works everything for the good of those who love Him. Trials are what God uses as tools to sharpen us, to test us, to mold us and to ultimately bless us. They help us grow. They refine us and prepare us for our purpose.
Looking back on my life at this very moment, I can confidently say, God has been in it all. He is intimately aware of every detail of my life. In pain, persecution, and pushback. At the top of every peak and in the depths of every pit. He was there. He was always there.
My biggest advice I have for you today is to trust Him, with everything. Cling to the Word no matter what. Don’t stop praying, ever. And follow His voice always.
You will find your way.
Trials without God will break you.
Trials with God will make you.
Hold on to Him and let the rest go.
* Proverbs 17:3
In the same way that gold and silver are refined by the fire, the Lord purifies your heart by the tests and trials of life.
* James 1:2-4
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
* Romans 8:28
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.
* Psalm 23:4
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me.
