We need to understand that diamonds and pearls are made by a process. It takes a while but in the end, they become precious jewels. That is what our Lord is doing when He allows every trial and tribulation to come into our life. Oh yes, our God allows things, but HE works them for our good. And we wouldn’t be able to glorify Him without those trials and tribulations, because if we didn’t have them, we wouldn’t know that JESUS can and will deliver us out of them. If we could deliver ourselves, we wouldn’t need HIM. The truth is most of the time we have something to do with the reason for the trial. Maybe a bad choice, a wrong decision, or a mistake, but HE was, and is, at our beckoning call, to show us HE loves us and cares for us. He’s faithful. Trust in Him, he will always answer. Let the pressure come, knowing He has a plan for our VICTORY. We are winners. Only because of Jesus.
