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

How often have we been blind sided with a tragedy, illness, or devastating situation? How many of those times have we asked God, "Why?" It has been evident throughout the ages that fiery trials come to the good, the bad, the rich, the poor. If we are walking in the Holy Spirit and in communion with our Lord, we will understand that there will be trials and that we should not be surprised when they come. These trials test our faith. And, we have been divinely given everything we need to withstand the trial with God's joy, understanding that it will be opportunity for our growth and occasion for His glory.

Heavenly Father, we are humbled at our lack of faith when fiery trials come our way and we lose heart in Your sovereignty. You have told us we would have tribulations and trials. We stand in need of Your grace to build up our faith so that we can face these trials with the determination to overcome for Your glory. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
