Psalm 66:12–You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
God had allowed the people to go through difficult times. They experienced the trials and persecutions, but they also saw God’s deliverance to bring them out to a place of abundance. God never promised us a pain-free path through life. He knew we would experience difficulties and He allows that so we will have an opportunity to grow. Will we continue through the trials so that we will come through to the place of abundance?
Father, keep me focused on You. Only You are able to keep me as I go through the trials and tests that You allow to come my way. I will trust You and rest in You.
