During Trials Praise God

The Storm Is Over

Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.  But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower.  For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.     Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

James 1:9-12

God will always use trials for our benefit and He is always in control.  Praise Him for who He is no matter what you are going through. Scripture says we should give thanks not for everything but in everything.  Always remember to count it as joy that God has decided to use a trial in your life to make you more like His Son.

Father, although I may feel the fire of a trial I know that you are using it to refine and purify me to be more like His Son.
