In the midst of a global pandemic, it is easy to understand Peter when he writes, “you have been grieved by various trials…” (1 Peter 1:6). However, as we examine God’s Word, we are promised that as believers, we triumph THROUGH trials. We do this as we remember God’s greatness, using our trials to glorify Him, rejoicing in the God of our salvation, trusting Him by putting our hope and faith in Him, purposing to be Holy like Him, and loving others sincerely. Trials are the testing of our faith, that ought to result in “praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ,” (1 Peter 1:7).
