God Works Through 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)

Whatever trial you are going through, know there is something to be gained. Times when you can’t see your way out of a problem are actually the best times to trust and believe. Know that there is nothing too hard, painful or devastating that Jesus does not identify with. When you bring your suffering to Him in prayer, He feels your pain as you feel His comfort.

Lord Jesus, on days when I feel tested, I can go on because You are with me.
