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!”

  1. Okay, I’ll be the first to comment, because I saw something I didn’t like. The tense was not consistent here:

    “At times it was hard

    Each movement must be barred

    My thoughts to disregard

    …at times it was hard”

    Sorry folks. 😦

  2. Reblogged this on Moore to Ponder and commented:

    “7 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:”
