Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trials which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you. (K.J.V)
This is a very profound statement made by the beloved Apostle Peter. Peter fully understood that fiery trials will come our way… Peter also knew that these trials were not meant to stay.
This is why he encourages us, when the trials do come,don’t think it strange… but do take a good look within to see if there is anything that we may need to change.
If all is well, then rest in the fact that this is a season of preparation… for that purposed destination.
Life in Christ is not all peaches and cream… especially in this last day, when what’s wrong is right, and right wrong, or so it seem.
From God this world is moving further and further away… being used by the enemy to throw these fiery darts, because in God we choose to stay.
Though there is no need to fear… for God has not just left us hear.
1 Peter 5:10 states:
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you… and God’s word is true.
So the next time the fiery trials are thrust into your life to kill, steal, destroy or ‘re-arrange… take the advise from Apostle Peter, and, DON’T THINK IT STRANGE.
