Persevering Through Trials
We often view trials as something we need to escape as quickly as possible. However, the Word tells us that it is healthy to stay in them until God has completed His work in us. If you want to tell whether a diamond is real or not, you hold it to heat. If it shatters under the pressure of the heat, it is not a real diamond. In the same way, if we allow ourselves to be transformed by God while we are under fire, we come out on the other side genuine.
