Jesus in our Trials
“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.“ James 1:2-3 (NIV)
We may have the right to pursue happiness but we have no promise of such – that is why we have Jesus. We all seem to struggle, at some point in our lives, with heartaches from illnesses, broken relationships, injustices, and financial hardship. Let’s be thankful that we serve a risen Lord who understands and helps us through trials.
We don’t have to shrink back when we see tough times headed our way, because we can confidently know that the Lord will see us through. We can face the trials before us knowing that the Lord will walk with us and carry us if He needs too.
Let’s pray today for His strength to get through the trials we have now and the ones we will yet face.
