The God of the Waves

 

When trials come, it’s easy to forget that the trials are only temporary. What we’re going through we are going through. That’s been the experience of God’s children down through the ages.

Take heart that God is seeing us through to a glorious end.

“But God is the God of the waves and the billows, and they are still His when they come over us; and again and again we have proved that the overwhelming thing does not overwhelm. Once more by His … [intervention] deliverance came. We were cast down, but not destroyed.”

~Amy Carmichael


“We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 (ESV).

    The Bible talks about we will be refined by fire into what God wants us to be…more pure each time.

  2. Good point, Bruce. We forget the purpose of trials.
