DON'T BE SURPRISED

 
 
1 Peter 4:12


"Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you." ESV


Haven't we all found ourselves asking why the trouble in our lives is happening? It's like we believe trials and tribulations shouldn't be happening to us, but perhaps to others far away that we don't know. If our Lord encountered horrible injustices, rejection, abuse, and even death by murder, why should we expect a trouble free life?


Heavenly Father, forgive us for questioning You when things go wrong in our lives. Help us to remember Your Word that tells us we will have trouble in this world. Give us an ever present awareness that You are with us and will see us through it all. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

If live were only so easy as to have no trials. But they certainly make us better than we are right now.
