Peace in Trials

We need to remember that God has a purpose for trials. We also need to remember that His Presence can keep us during trials. If we try to handle life’s problems by our own strength, sooner or later we will be overcome. If we draw upon His Presence, He will sustain us every step of the way. Adversity, suffering, heartache, pain, and sorrow are with us all through life. These test our faith, cause us to see our need of Divine strength, make us more aware of what our Savior went through and speak of His love for us as nothing else can. Drawing on His grace, comfort, strength and promises, we can cope and emerge with a testimony. Our trust may lead to an early departure for Heaven or an opportunity to comfort others and inspire them to trust Him. God is there for His own, and He can and does make even very hard things work together for good for them. Paul, who went through much more than most of us ever will, wrote under inspiration, in Romans 8:28: “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Haldor Lillenas gave us these words of comfort and confidence, in his hymn, “My Wonderful Friend:” “When sorrow and pain are my portion, when tears of bereavement must fall, My Savior, my Friend, and Companion will comfort and keep through it all. When tempests around me are sweeping, My Pilot and Guide He will be; and safe is my soul in His keeping. My mighty Deliv’rer is He.” Selah! He is there for His own 24/7, He will provide grace to weather life’s trials. Trust Him, call upon Him, and rest in Him.   Ron
