Trials

“While I understand that praying for things to work out perfectly is ideal we can’t forget that God lets us learn though trials and mistakes. So don’t be discouraged when God answers with a lesson. Some growth only comes by experience.”

WORD OF THE DAY: Trial

Posted on Updated on

A trial is any difficult, trying, or painful situation that a person goes through that God can use for good. 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.

Devotion for the week of 2/10/14-2/16/14

Isaiah 48:10 says ‘See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.’ Trials are often said to ‘refine’ us, and this verse confirms that. Affliction means trials so, when God says He tests us in the ‘furnace of affliction’, He means that He tests us through the ‘fire’ of our trials. Just as silver is refined when put through fire, we are ‘refined’ when put through trials. God puts us through trials to help make us better. He also tests us through our trials which means that He uses trials to test our faith. When we go through hard times God wants us to turn to Him for help. Some of us do, but others shun Him because they are angry that He has placed them in that trial. It is when we ask for his help, though, that He will bring us through our trial. We just need to trust Him. In my experience, I have always learned a lesson from my trials. My trials have always refined me and made me a better person. It’s important to know that God doesn’t give us trials to hurt us, He gives us trials to help us. Sometimes in life, by the decisions we make, we put ourselves through hard times. But, when that happens, God will use that to make us better. Recently I went through something and it was my own fault that I went through it. But God used it to help me learn a lesson and He refined me through it. So, whenever you are facing a trial, know that God will use it for your good. He will refine you!
