Tried with Fire

“That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:7

The enemy may be bringing everything he has against you. Hurt after hurt. Calamity after calamity. Distress after distress. Accusation after accusation. And while it feels as though you are not going to make it, your faith will. Your faith will see you through every single trial. You may feel the effects of the fire right now, and the heaviness may be weighing on you, but God will make sure your faith remains intact. Your faith is indeed more precious than gold.

Just when you think you’re done and can’t take anymore, Jesus shows up in the fire. When He said He will never leave you nor forsake you, He meant it. When He said, He is your Shield and your Defense, He meant it. When He said that no weapon formed against you would prosper, He meant it. God has not abandoned you, and He has not left your side. He is right there to help your faith remain.

Understand that every Word of God strengthens your faith, so don’t close your Bible now. Hide it in your heart and declare it from your mouth. Speak to your situation as you stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!

Prayer: Father God, I cry out to you. You alone are my God and there is none else. Thank you for being my impenetrable Shield. I place my total trust in you. You are with me to help me come through gloriously. Thank you that your word fights for me. I hide it in my heart and declare it from my mouth. In Jesus name, Amen.

  5. The Fire is making me ask God questions I’ve never asked Him before. Questions that He is not giving me answers to, to comfort my heart. I’ve never known such a place. It is a place that I question the goodness of God, but yet believe in His Goodness by faith. He is not answering me, but I am not turning away from Him. I am going deeper in Him. I want to know Him more even in all that I don’t understand. Truly, I wish I had not been born than to go through so much. I know some of my own choices in life have gotten me where I am today. I feel like a failure in so many ways. But I know I have a good heart and do well by others. So why do others who don’t even care about anyone but themselves and what pertains them have it so easy? I love and want the best for people sincerely. Why have I had to go through so much hell from childhood until now? Why is it never easy for me? Has God forgotten me? Am I unworthy of anything better or more. Does He love others more than me? Has He turned from me? Will there never be a change and must I just settle? I don’t know, but I do know I will serve Him even in tears and whether things change or they don’t. I love Him. His faithfulness in my life proves Him worthy of my love and devotion. I love Him in spite of what I feel and don’t understand. I love Him for who He is. I love Him questioning why He created us if He knew we would sin, and the consequences of sin would cause so much suffering and evil. Evil like a child being raped? Evil like little babies being molested. They are innocent but yet suffer such harm. Lord show me more of who you are in this Fire. I want to know your ways and see your face. Even though I am hurting, I chose you. I want to know and understand you more. Because everything in me tells me that you are indeed good no matter what it looks like or feels like right now. I chose you not just in the good times but in the worst of times. When I feel like I can’t go on and question the day I was born, I hold on to you.

  6. I just want to share that, today’s word was how I felt this morning driving to work. I am under so much fire at work that it is crazy. I am unable to understand why. I’ve felt so alone for months now. There’s so much coming against me, attack after attack and I seriously cannot understand it. DOTK keeps me going every single day. I feel that God is only talking to me through this. I’m praying for breakthroughs and I need it so badly. I just want God to remove me from the situation. I typed my resignation letter on the 19th of June this year, thinking to leave this workplace as soon as I can but God put a stop to it and I deleted it. I’m unsure of how long more I will be able to handle the situation but DOTK has truly been a blessing to me. Thank you & God Bless you mightly for being his vessels of encouragement. Please pray for me. I need a divine and supernatural intervention.

  7. Amen. Those were some kind of inspiration word for me I know he walked with me and he talked with me I know he guides my feet everyday and I thank them I think of my approved to eat clothes on my back in the house shut over my head I think I’m at a voice to Holly’s name thank you Jesus say man.

  8. I know You won’t let me sink, burn, or drown, dear God. There seems to be one thing after another, but I know You are always there encouraging Your sheep to draw nigh to You. With You is where I want to be. Thank You for Your Agape love! πŸ™πŸΎβ™₯️

  9. Dotk keeps me hopeful during this rough season. I cried out and God gave me assurance to keep going πŸ™
