Strengthened by Trials

James 1:3-4 (TPT) For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up power within you to endure all things. And then as your endurance grows even stronger it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.

Beloved, the trials you have walked through have served their purpose. They have stretched your faith and enlarged your ability to believe in Me for both the miraculous and the mundane. You have tasted and seen, you know that I AM faithful. Your confidence in My character is steadfast for I AM unimpugnable.

You’ve learned by experience that worrying and wondering are wastes of time and energy, and in wisdom you simply look to Me and follow My lead. As a result, I AM pouring out increase over you, for you are faithful to Me, and I cherish that. I do not take lightly the cost that was required from you to get to this point. Though I know it was needful, it didn’t make it easy to watch as you struggled, but you were tried by fire and have been strengthened for it. You are My joy.

  2. Amen. Thank you so much, Meghan! Read this through tears this morning. This is the Father’s heartbeat for sure. It is always a comfort to focus on what is gained in the trials. The most important thing is that I have gained more of Him, but I know He’s also done more in me than I yet see. Thank you, Father, for strengthening me!
