James 1:12 (KJV): Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 17 Oct 2023
It is countercultural and unnatural for anyone to be happy in tribulations and trials that could even be life-threatening sometimes. But Jehovah lets us know that those who are His should expect to face fiery trials in this world and they should patiently face them because He is with them to make it bearable. The purpose of trials and tribulations is not to destroy but to refine and mould those who trust in Jehovah to conform to His desire for them. If you are in Christ and you are presently faced with very difficult challenges, I encourage you to hold on to the Holy Spirit and continue to draw enduring grace from Him. He is your Comforter in all situations. If you are not in Christ, I urge you to consider again and come to Christ. He is the only One who gives peace beyond understanding.
Pray: Holy Spirit, I need You, please give me enduring grace to withstand tribulations. #Mok
