The trial is an accelerator

AMED 40.26-2

Home | A Miracle Every Day | Miracles | The trial is an accelerator

May this message today strengthen you, especially concerning the difficult and fiery trial called “coronavirus” that our whole world is experiencing…  

But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.’” (the Bible, Isaiah 43:1-2, NKJV)   

As a natural element, fire is generally considered to be a threat with great destructive potential. Yet, fire helps spread the seeds of certain trees, like pines, for example. When exposed to a fire’s extreme heat, the previously dormant seeds are activated and released into the atmosphere. What good could the Lord be doing through this worldwide coronavirus trial, as appalling as it is? What new life, what beauty will come of it?

The Lord understands what you’re going through, even at this very moment. He’s not insensitive to your pain and sorrow. However, He knows what fruit will be released in your life as you walk through the extreme heat with Him.

Here is the good news for you as God’s son/daughter:

  • The fire of the trial is not destroying you…it is refining you.
  • Difficulties don’t stop you…they press you into the presence of God.
  • Opposition is not a brake…it’s a springboard that the Lord uses to raise you up to new levels of faith and victory! 

You are not alone. God is here. He will not allow the fire of this trial to destroy you. He will not allow you to be tested beyond your strength (see 1 Corinthians 10:13). You will not be destroyed. God has filled you with a spirit of faith, courage, and power!

Let’s lift our voices to God today and sing this powerful song with Kari Jobe in might and faith! I encourage you to listen all the way to the end of the song…!

Today, I believe your view of the trials you’re experiencing is changing. You’re not walking towards destruction…you are walking into God’s extraordinary plan and purpose for your life!

Thanks for existing!

      Thank you for this reminder.

      Im living with an abusive sister who has brainwashed our father against me and turned him into a complete fool. If she tells him to scream loudly as if he’s in danger to get me involved, he does! He’s confined to a wheelchair and can’t do anything for himself. He will allow her to obstruct my path with his wheelchair to trap me. It’s the sickest thing I’ve seen my whole life.

        Hi Cece
        I’m sorry you are going through that with your family. I would suggest you pray for your sister and your father but you will need to forgive them first. Prayer changes things. Pray a hedge of protection around the home after you pray. God bless you!
