Suffering is an unavoidable part of life. We live in a chaotic world and people are bound to fall but with the help of God one will overcome and come out better refined. The scripture testifies it when in the book of James 1:2-4. It says

\”Consider it pure joy my brothers and sisters whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance . Let perseverance finish it\’s work so that you may be mature and complete not lacking in anything\”.

Trials teaches us WHO WE ARE! They make up the soil and show us what kind of soil we are made of. In the midst of your trials and pains, don’t ever think you are being PUNISHED by an ANGRY GOD; always see the battles He allows you to go through as His way of PURGING AND PRUNING (TRIMMING) you to become a pretty JEWEL in His showroom.

When we PRUNE (CUT and TRIM) our trees or gardens it comes out A MORE BEAUTIFUL GARDEN! Do you TRIM your garden because you are ANGRY? No! You TRIM and cut out WEEDS because your target is to have a more GLORIOUS GARDEN as your goal. That is the story of our life! No wonder Job said in the time of his trials  “But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10).

I pray that in all your struggles and trials you will come forth as a refined GOLD! Yes! Your marital story will come forth as gold! Your financial story will come forth as gold! Your career and ministry story will come forth as gold! Your health will come forth as gold! The story of your children or your household will come forth as gold in Jesus name

As 2020 is drawing near , stop crying in secret! STOP pitying yourself or envying others!EVERYBODY HAS A CROSS THEY ARE CARRYING! Listen: LIFE IS NOT A PLAYGROUND BUT A CLASSROOM!God is at work! He makes no mistakes! God alone knows what each of us must endure in order for HIS CHARACTER TO BE FORMED IN US! It is in our trials that God uses to REFINE us and remove our impurities.

Like refined gold and the silversmith at work, when you pass through your trials, the world will see HIS REFLECTION in you!REFUSE TO QUIT NOW! Hold on, hold out and TRUST HIM! Your God has a plan!


The song writer in 4th Stanza of STAND UP! STAND UP FOR JESUS The strife will not be long; This day the noise of battle, The next the victor\’s song; To him that overcometh, A crown of life shall be; He with the King of glory Shall reign eternally.

Let this be your assurance to fight with boldness and be courageous not giving in to fear because you will stand out to be a reference point. May the Lord hear your prayers and grant you victory over trials in Jesus name
