Why do we go through trials? That He might be glorified! For those of you who may wonder if God is with you in trials, sometimes you may not be convinced until the glorious outcome. But what a faith-builder for the next time you are facing something that only He can see you through.
When our faith is strengthened, that gives God glory. And trials are the strength-builders of our faith. So it stands to say that trials are meant that He might be glorified, as long as we trust the outcome to Him.
Why do we experience joys and triumphs? That He might be glorified! “The joy of the Lord is our strength.” Throughout life, it is important to focus on and trust in the Lord to preserve our joy.
Be it trials or triumphs, it is all that He might be glorified. Remember when Jesus healed some who were sick, blind and even raised from death? When the disciples asked, “Who did sin?” Christ replied, “None did sin, it was meant for the glory of God.” For believers, I would venture to say that more often than not, that is the case.
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.
