Bible Verse: Isaiah 43: 2
When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
The Lord uses some interesting and sometimes painful ways to get our attention. We’ve all heard time and time again about the purpose of trials. Trials do come to make us strong. However, we must remember that HOW we go through is just as important as reaching the other side. We can’t give up when we’re facing trials, and we must show the world that the
victory has already been won by the way we behave in our trials. I’m not saying that we must laugh when the pain is so intense, but we must ask for and lean on the Lord for our peace.
It’s true that you really find out what you’re made of when real trouble comes, and particularly through the storms. Often, because of our lack of faith, our reaction to our struggles compounds matters and makes things much worse.
I have learned that we should be content in all situations. Worry is useless, self-centred, and has absolutely no purpose. Yet, this is the first emotion we feel after we are greeted with bad news or we’re facing a situation that we have no control over.
So how are we to go through? Start by taking the time to remember how God has led you in the past. Ask for His Guidance, and look for the blessings in your situation. Go through with the Lord and be victorious.
