God is refining your character. You want those flaws to be gone right away, but He lets us endure them so we learn patience by relying on Him. The longer the time period of lessons, the more we remember it and the more grounded we will be in that truth. It’s like, “If He let me go through it [the testing] for a year, I will remember it so much more than if it was just a week.” I can look back and look at what the Lord has taught me. I can say to myself and see, “Look what God did!” Sometimes if it’s just a short few days of struggle, I may just look at it and think: “that was fluke in my personality.” Like a momentary fail. But instead, in those longer times we can see “No, that was something He needed to change. And only He could do that. Leaders fail over and over. You learn from those mistakes, and can look back and say “okay, this is an area I need to grow in, and next time I know what I need to do differently.” We also need to remember our identity not in things or performance. At it gets to a point that this [thing that tests you, the area you fail or fall short in] is not consuming you; you say “I’m tired of this!” And you surrender. Then God says, “Oh, now you understand. I will set you free from this. Let Me free you.

In the midst of pain, we’re tempted to ask the “Where is God in this?” question, but what we should ask is, “Where is my worship in this?“

God does give us more than we can handle. He certainly does. You know why? Because He wants us to rely on Him, not our own strength or ability to get through difficult situations. Our world stresses self-confidence and pride and accomplishment, but we are not called to praise ourselves. Every good thing, every morning added into the bank of our lives is given to us by the Father. We cannot boast in ourselves but in Him.

Do they know you like I know you? Did they know you before the Earth was born? Did they know you before you were in your mothers womb? Do they know the deepest desires of your heart? Do they know everything you’ve ever done and love you anyway? No, but I do. I know every single thing about you and I want all of you still. Don’t let them tell you who you are. Let me, the One who really knows you, tell you who you are.

Always remember that there’s a purpose in your pain. God is refining you - slowly making you into the person you were always meant to be.

You realize there is nothing to fear living in His presence. The world can take it all because you have found everything in Him.

God knows what’s best for you. He knows what you need and when you need it. He knows how to put you at the right place at the right time. He knows where the danger is and where the good breaks are. You have to learn to trust that inner peace, that inner prompting that leads you.

Even if the odds are against you, if you feel good about it in your heart, move forward. On the other hand, if there is unrest or uneasiness, if you don’t have peace, then wait. Don’t ignore the promptings, the impressions, the knowings. That’s God talking to you.

Always remember, God wants to help you in your everyday life, not just in the big decisions, but even in the small things. He wants to pour out His favor on you and release your frustrations. If you will be sensitive to His leading, if you will follow His peace, He will lead you into the blessing and victory He has prepared for you!

Job didn’t have to know why he was going “through the fire.” He was content to know that God knew. He recognized that God was in control, and if God was in control, he was in good hands.

You don’t fall into love. You commit to it. Love is saying I will be there no matter what.
