Scripture references;

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” 1 Peter 1:1-12 KJV

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”  James 1:2-4 KJV

 

“Trial of Faith” by Theresa Anne Moore

 

I was told to stay

To wait, to watch, to pray

And not to go astray

To trust and obey

 

At times it was hard

Each movement must be barred

My thoughts to disregard

…at times it was hard

 

I was called one day

And heard the Master say

“It’s time. Do not delay.

I will lead the way.”

 

At times it was hard

To walk with no regard

For nerves that had  been jarred

…at times it was hard

 

Then there came the day

I heard the Master say

“My heart wants to convey

The joy it feels today!”

The Last Word

We go through some rough times here on the earth. Sometimes it is the result of wrong we have done and sometimes it isn’t. We really don’t know, because there isn’t a single day that anybody refrains from sinning, even Christians. We all sin daily in our thoughts, our words, and our deeds. Even in the midst of the most terrible times no matter what the cause the Lord still hears our cries, and loves us very deeply. He withholds his comfort from no one who calls on Him.

Scripture reference;

The Lord Rebukes Job’s Friends

After the Lord had spoken these words to Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “My anger burns against you and against your two friends, for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. Now therefore takeseven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and offer up a burnt offering for yourselves. And my servant Job shall pray for you, for I will accept his prayer not to deal with you according to your folly. For you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.”  So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went and did what the Lord had told them, and the Lord accepted Job’s prayer. Job 42:7-9 ESV

Poor Job had been through so much, and on top of that, his “friends” just had to tell him what they…
