Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Faith Tested by Fire

     Father, the flames of devastation may turn our possessions into ashes, our hopes into tears, and our dreams into nightmares, but our faith in you will enable us to persevere through it all.

1 Peter 1:6-8 (ESV)
     6 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,

     Thank you Father that our tested faith gives evidence of our love for you, our belief in you and our joy in you, that  surpasses understanding. It is faith with a reason though it doesn’t know all the whys.

Andrea Crouch’s Song, expresses it so well, “Through It All”

I thank God for the mountains,
and I thank Him for the valleys,
I thank Him for the storms He brought me through.
For if I’d never had a problem,
I wouldn’t know God could solve them,
I’d never know what faith in God could do.

Through it all,
through it all,
I’ve learned to trust in Jesus,
I’ve learned to trust in God.
Through it all,
through it all,
I’ve learned to depend upon His Word.

     Thank you Father that because of your Sovereignty, goodness and wisdom we always gain more than we lose. We praise you in Jesus Name. Amen!
