In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while
you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
These have come so that your faith‚Ä¶may be proved genuine
and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now,
you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
• This is not a time to panic but rather a time to praise.
• Any trials, troubles and testings will only refine and strengthen your faith.
• Expect your comebacks will be greater than your setbacks.
Heavenly Father, I rejoice and praise your name.
I count it all joy knowing you are working in my life.
I pray that you will turn my setbacks into great comebacks.
Turn my sorrows into singing and my trails into triumphs.
Strengthen me and use me for your honor and glory.
