From tribulations come perseverance, proven character and hope. In other words, God is creating a greater good by the suffering. For now let us think about gaining a sufficient degree of confidence of God's goodness that we will never again question God's good ness during severe trials.
 
Tribulation is God's chemistry through which He fulfills His eternal purpose in those who through faith have accepted the full forgiveness which He offers in Jesus.
 
Christian friends, If you are facing a difficult test, praise God. Under His wise control, everything that happens to us, whether pleasurable or painful, is designed to develop Christlike character. That's why we can glory in tribulation.

Someday you will see the light;
All He asks is that you trust Him,
Walk by faith and not by sight.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - The gem of Christlike character is formed by pressure and refined by friction.
