Today's Bible Verse
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
From the Book
I’m praying that you will consider this trial as an opportunity for joy. [Part 3]
Our troubles are giving us an opportunity to live out the faith we claim. As our faith is put to the test through trials, we are called upon to persevere — to keep choosing to trust and rest and find our comfort in God alone. And as we persevere, we find we are “growing up” in our faith. Our roots are going down deeper into God. Joy comes as we contemplate emerging from the suffering as people who have a stability and steadfastness that makes us less easily shaken by difficult circumstances in the future.
<I'm Praying for You> Nancy Gutherie, p60
Father God, You created my soul. You know every detail of my being. I had prayed for the revival of our Young adult community at church; and You taught me that praying for the revival is not enough by making me meet one specific person who is suffering from betrayal and fraud. When You made me to know her situation, You also made me face the ugliest truth--the fact that I am not the right person for praying. God, I'm so full of self-righteousness. I'm quick to judge others. My words mean nothing for I am an irresponsible person. How can a person like me pray for the revival of the community when I can't even understand or feel the level of agony this one person is having? Lord, but I choose to find joy by contemplating the future when You will make me pray with Your heart.
