Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start.
A new day to rise and declare the truth over your life.
A new day to use the Holy Scriptures to speak back to the darkness and make it flee..
You may be in a dark season, a trial, or something is worrying you and pressing on you heavily.
You may be wondering if this is all there is for you.
You may have decided struggles are just your portion.
These are ALL Deceptions from the enemy to keep.you bound in hopelessness, worry, or fear.
When you meet a trial, a situation that appears hard, maybe even impossible…..
Choose gladness because JOY is ahead!!!
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while.
1 Peter 1:6 NLT
It is written that even though I am walking through a trial, I will choose gladness because there is JOY up ahead. My Lord already has a victory plan for this thing and I will place my eyes to the Lord. I will move my vision from.the earthly realm to the spiritual realm, and take hold of the peace available to me right now even before breakthrough. And I will trust in the written Word of my Lord. He’s King and He’s declares that He is my Father, and I trust that He will take care of me.
Here’s the rest of the scriptures that follow the verse in 1Peter 6.
These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:7-9 NLT
There is GREAT reward for trusting the Lord in EVERY season! He sees you. He hears you..He knows your every need. You can walk in gladness knowing that the Lord is caring for you, preparing rewards for you, and refining you like gold! But He says your faith is MORE valuable than mere gold. Meaning gold is not even comparable to how precious your steady faith is to God! Imagine that as you choose trust and gladness, your faith becomes more and more valuable and precious. Every time you choose to pray instead of worry, your faith value is refined like gold until it’s PURE and RADICAL and AUTHENTIC..and so much much more valuable than gold!
Dear Heavenly Father,
We choose gladness. Even in the trials and the struggles, we choose to partner with what is written. We are being refined like gold, but our faith is worth even more than gold! You have a great reward ahead for us and we desire to please YOU! We want to have the faith that remains through every single season of life..
In Jesus’s Name,
Blessings this Beautiful Saturday!
