You Can Make it Through the Fire

It seems like recently that many people I know are going through trials. From sickness to family crises to financial turmoil people are going through a lot of stuff.
At the first sign of crises we fall to our knees and cry out to God, keep me from this lord, don’t let me go through this.  None of us want to face adversity. But have any of us thought that maybe we are to go through the trial.  When we go through the trial do we not ever stop and think that God is allowing us to go through this so that we can get stronger. How do we not know that God knows more than we do?
God could be preparing us for something that is ahead of us.  God is getting us ready to face something greater. Just because we don’t see it doesn’t mean it won’t happen.
The truth is when we go through trials, it is those trials that make us stronger. When we go through those trials we realize that God will get us through it.
When you think about trials remember what the 3 Hebrew children went through in Daniel 3. Because of their faith they were forced into the fire. They made it through the fire. In that fire there was someone with them. That someone was the Son of God.
You will get through the fire. It may not seem like it now but you will get through the fire.  And if your not going through a trial right now,  the next time you do go through one pray that God will help you through it not keep you from it.
Jesus spoke these words to us in John 16:33. “These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
