"Ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations, that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ."
- 1 Peter 1:6,7
 
The person who suffers will grow stronger if he is attentive to what the LORD is saying.  I remember C.S. Lewis saying, "God whispers in our pleasures, but shouts in our pain." The LORD must sometimes force us by means of distresses to pay attention to His voice. While such times of testing aren't pleasant, we must wait patiently for Him to accomplish His purposes.

Misfortunes never come alone for the Christian; God always come with them. It is wrong to pray "Our Father" and then to fret like orphans whenever the Father sends a rod by which He would lead us to a spirit of submission to His will. If you feel that the trials are coming too fast and are too heavy to bear, take your dictionary and look up the word "obsolete."

In the trials God may prove us
Just to bring us forth more bright;
He can never cease to love us
We are precious in His sight.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Anything suffered in the body can profit the soul.
