Free of Trials and Tribulations?

Image result for james 1 2-3

I want to share this scripture with you because it seems impossible in the natural to consider it JOY when we are being abused. But I have heard several victims of abuse say almost exactly what is in this picture… “every time I get hit, it drives me deeper into Him”. You see, in abusive situations, God becomes our refuge. He becomes that secret place that we seek rest, solitude, peace, and comfort. And it is in that Secret Place that He reveals much more of Himself and provides the protection that we need.

Free of trials and tribulations?
That’s something we all desire…
but it’s in our brokenness…
that God ignites His Fire.
For God says to consider it joy…
when we face trials of any kind…
because it’s in trials and tribulations…
that more of God we will find.

Now we don’t know of many…
who these trials bring such joy…
but God will use all things for good…
despite the enemy’s destructive ploy.
For when we finally realize…
that we can’t do it alone…
we dig deeper and deeper in Him…
where His presence becomes known.

For until we are fully broken…
with various abuses we endure…
we don’t even realize our need…
until in brokenness we seek Him more.
So go deeper and deeper in faith…
for when we ask, we shall receive…
and God is looking for those…
who in the miraculous they believe.

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” James 1: 2-3
