God’s word holds lot of promises to those who indulge in its truth (2 Cor 1:20). Sometimes the fire that we pass through is so we can see for ourselves that God’s word stand true and flawless (Psalms 19:1-11) regardless our circumstances and situation.
Test and see that the Lord is good (Psalm 34:8), His promises are ye and amen (2 Cor 1:20). He shall keep to the promise He has made to his loved ones.
The trying of our faith (James 1:1-4) yields for us a far more exceeding glory (2 cor 4:17) and we are brought even more closer to him as we learn to depend on his word for all that pertains to life and Godliness.
We therefore need to maintain a Joyful attitude of Thanksgiving when we pass through diverse temptation for we know God is treating us as sons (Heb 12:7) and build us through the word we received of him.
It is able to build us and give us an inheritance among them that are sanctified (Acts 20:32).
We should know that those who went before us went through similar ordeal but have counted God as faithful.
Therefore let us by the same spirit of faith say; the Lord is with me , He will never leave me nor forsake me.
Sometimes what we go through or why we go through stuff doesn’t really matter. What really matter is that we saw God in it, Job saw God through his pains.
Fire reveals us as God’s Sons and Daughters of the kingdom.
