tears

knock you down

Since the sovereign God has every atom in the universe precisely timed and controlled for the carrying out of His perfect will, it should not be difficult for us to understand why He is so meticulous in His development of us as His instruments. “Being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will (Eph. 1:11).

 

 

You are one of God’s rough diamonds, and He is going to have to cut you so that you may really shine for Him. It takes a diamond to cut a diamond. You are to be ground and cut, and hurt by other diamonds, by other Christians, by spiritual Christians.

 

 

God sends us such trials as are exactly fitted for us. Our Heavenly Father knows what will best serve us. He serves us by trials and by comforts. Let us remember that our trials are few—our evil ways are many; our worthiness nothing—our comforts great. When God tries us let us consider how we have been trying Him. By grace we will not murmur, but humble ourselves under His mighty hand, and He will exalt us in due time.”

 

 

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you” (1 Pet. 4:12)

 

 

To bear up under trials, we must trust in the sovereign goodness of God in every situation.

  1. God is sovereign over all, even over the evil things people do.

  2. God is good in everything He does.

  3. We must trust the sovereign goodness of God in the midst of our trials.

  4. We must learn to live under the authority of God.

No matter how bad your day, God is in control, “though there be weeping in the night, joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5)

 

God has counted every tear in your life, they are measured as surely as the seas know their boundaries. (GW)

  1. Yes so true….. why should we be shocked when we go through trials? yes most of the time we are! I think we should not only be surprise when fiery trials come, we should expect them! We’re in a battle each and every day (and if we’re not, then why?), so prepare, put on the full armor of God, so that we can stand. Thanks

  2. appreciate all the feed back, and prayers and encouraging words, blessings on all
