Are you stuck?

Are you stuck in that place and seem as if you just can't get out? Do you think that you are not making any headway? Do you think that you will never get past this time in your life?

God will allow things to happen to us to help us learn. He gives us these tests so that we may know who we are in Him. God trusts us with these tests and knows that we will pass them. He will repeat the test until we have passed it. God will not give us anymore than we can bear. We have to go through these trials to get set free of whatever is holding us back. It is always harder to finish our trial than it is at the start. When we get stuck in our trial it is better that we go to the throne, than go and start telling everyone what is going on. Yes, we should seek counsel if needed, but we need to pray and allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us. The Holy Spirit is the best counselor in the world. Lean on Him, trust in Him. The Holy Spirit will help us to understand how we must face what is before us.

"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that he shall speak: and he will shew you things to come." (John 16:13)

We are not always set free of that trial that is set before us the moment that we call upon His name. Sometimes we must go completely through the trial and be patient and continue in faith. He will give us the grace and strength that we need to make through the trial.

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." (II Corinthians 12:9a)

We must go through the trial, before we can get out. In order to deliver us out of our trial we must first face those issues that we find difficult. We have got to learn to endure, and know that there is joy on the other side of our trial. We have got to learn and wait with patience. As we do He will reveal even greater truths to us, so we can face what we need to at the present.

    Gail,
    How true it is...our trials and tests are God's opportunities!

    Peter was not one that liked to be tested and tried until after the day of Pentecost when he was empowered from on high and received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Something in Peter changed from the poor wretched man who denied Christ 3 times to the bold powerful preacher that later write...1 Peter 1:6-9 Wherein you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been put to grief in various trials, that the proof of your faith, which is more precious than gold that perishes even though it is tested by fire, may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ-- whom not having known you love; in whom, though now you don't see him, yet believing, you rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory-- receiving the result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

    There are many tests and trials, but there is only one answer to them all - Jesus Christ :)
