Praise Him Through the Storm

1Peter 4:12 - 13 “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:” “But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

Suffering is simply another affirmation of sonship. It is this suffering that demonstrates not only the power of God but also his never-ending love. But the love of God is something we often miss due to us being so caught up in our present situation. Jesus, the Son of God, endured the ultimate suffering, he was like a lamb to the slaughter, who, having all the power of God inside of him remained on that Cross to bear the price of sins he never committed. And from this sacrifice, the world was able to see the love of God.

As a son, whenever you go through a trial, you are put on display to all those in your sphere of influence. Despite what they say, they are looking to you to prove Christ. How can you say God is your provider if you never had to be in a situation where he needs to provide for you? How can you say that he is your comforter if he never needed to console you? How can you say that he’s given you a peace that surpasses all understanding if in every situation you act as the world does in times of adversity? We cannot let our situation dictate who God is in our lives because He is bigger than that and he is still God despite whatever it is you’re going through. His love and thoughts
