Your Troubles Are For A Reason.

I have been walking with the Lord awhile, and I know this for sure – He places those He prizes highly through fire. If you do not believe me, ask Brother Job. Was it not the Lord who practically invited the temper into Job’s life? Job 1 vs. 8. The Lord allows the fire of life test His beloved. If you are still not sure, ask the Lord Jesus Christ. Who led Him to be tempted? According to all the account of the synoptic gospels (Mt. 4: 1; Lk.4: 1), it was the Holy Spirit! So, your troubles are for a reason. After every test comes promotion. You shall not miss your own day of elevation IJN.

So, precious vessels that the Lord draws the most brilliant glory from must of necessity be exposed to the melting pot of trials, tribulations, tests, distress. You may think this is bad news, but listen dear friend; even those who live godly lives will suffer trials, temptations and yes, even persecution. Ask Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (Dan. 3); inquire from Brother Daniel (Dan. 6).

It is however, not all gloom and doom. The good news is that you might be in fire but your God controls the thermostat. He knows how hot it needs to be to accomplish His purpose in your life. That is what He promised in 1 Cor. 10: 13. So, dear friend, no matter the stress you are going through right now, RELAX and PREPARE for your manifestation! After every night comes the beautiful morning. No matter how buffeted you are right now, I know the thoughts He has towards you … they are thoughts of good, not of evil. Your troubles are for a reason, and they are for a season!

Finally, if I am to go through this purification test of troubles to reach my goal, I don’t know anyone I would rather trust with the thermostat of the fire than the God of all grace. His promise to us is assured in Isa. 43: 2. My friends, you are created to excel and excel you shall. Enjoy the rest of your day. Shalom.

    Yes and every trial we go thru is meant to strengthen and help prepare us for what’s going to come next,it’s thru the fire that God shapes us,molds us into the image he has in his mind,and right after we go thru trials someone we run into or close to us is barely going thru that trial now we can minister what we have experienced ourselves to help and encourage them,The devil doesn”t bother anyone already working for him.amen
