There will be moments in our lives where God will use circumstances to develop our character, especially in áreas that we need to grow. Passing these tests will help us mature and be prepared for what God has in our future, a victorious and abundant life.
God has not given us that spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind. When you’re tempted to be afraid, live anxious, worried about how it’s going to work out, you need to do like David and remind yourself, the Lord is my Shepherd. Still your emotions. Come back to a place of peace.
It may feel like God has forgotten about you, but He's working behind the scenes. Sometimes the fire is the pathway to our destiny. God may not have delivered you from that fire, but you can see now, He made you fireproof. Greater is He that’s in you than what’s coming against you.
