“Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant?” – Numbers 11:  V11


Beloved, our heavenly Father frequently sends us trials to try our faith. If your faith is worth anything, it will stand the test.

True faith is the faith which holds on to the Lord’s faithfulness when friends are gone, when the body is sick, when your spirit is depressed, and the light of our Father’s countenance is hidden. A faith which can say, in the direst trouble, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him,” is heaven-born faith.

The Lord afflicts his servants to glorify Himself, for He is greatly glorified in the graces of his people,. When “tribulation worketh patience; and patience, experience; and experience, hope,” the Lord is honoured by these growing virtues.

The wisdom and power of the great workman are discovered by the trials through which his vessels of mercy are permitted to pass. Present afflictions tend also to heighten future joy. Could we be so supremely blessed in heaven, if we had not known the curse of sin and the sorrow of earth? Will not peace be sweeter after conflict, and rest more welcome after toil? Will not the recollection of past sufferings enhance the bliss of the glorified? We will put our trust in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at all times. Amen!


Start your day with Jesus.

Beloved, have a blessed day.
