Don’t focus only on what is obvious

Many wake to all kinds of trials today. The physical, mental and emotional strain can be so severe it is difficult to focus on anything else. If this is you then this verse is yours:-

“These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed.” (1 Peter 1 v 7)

  • This is for that.
  • There is an unseen reality connected to your struggle.
  • This is not an end in itself but a means to an end which is the revelation of Jesus Christ.

All kinds of trials that we go through serve to prove the genuineness of what we believe and lead to an eternal reward of praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ returns.

Therefore:

  1. This won’t destroy you it will prove you RIGHT.
  2. This isn’t leading to your ruin but your REFINEMENT.
  3. This isn’t displaying your present weakness but it is displaying your future REWARD.
