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. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you James 1:2-5 New International Version
Jehovah allows us to endure trials and tribulations for a good reason. We do not know nor understand it at the time. We may even feel we are being unfairly punished.
God is the creator and we are the creation.
Sometimes He has to put us through the furnace to burn off that which bad for us whether it be in our personality or in relationships or in attitudes.
Most times we are not even aware of those bad traits or attitudes.
Speaking from personal experience it was only after my greatest trials and tribulation that I understood what he was wisely doing in my life. I am eternally grateful for that and that he did not listen to my cries during the tribulation to stop it. Every single trial and tribulation was for a specific reason.
Jehovah loves you and enjoys it even less than you do to watch you suffer.
So, even though you may not (and you usually do not) understand what is happening or why if you are going through tribulation have faith that the Master Potter is working you into a beautiful creation that is fit for heaven.
Even though you do not see the light at the end of the tunnel have faith that Jehovah only has you in the furnace as long as is necessary and not one minute more.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hosanna (God our maker) for the trials and tribulations brought into my life. Even though they have been difficult I now know they were for my own good.
I give thanks for these in the name of he who endured the tribulation of the cross for me Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
