It’s Not The Trial That Makes Us Strong – Today’s Marriage Prayer

We Are Currently Underway On Our New Study: 
Jacob: Pursuing God With Steadfast Faith & Unyielding Courage

This new study will continue until August 20th. If you would like to join us, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the journal on Amazon. As we go through Jacob’s life story, chapter by chapter, we’ll see God’s plan of salvation, Christ’s work on the cross, and lessons rich in life application.

Karissa is back to bless us with her insightful videos. Together, we’re taking a deep dive into God’s Word and fostering an even closer fellowship among us all. If you’re not already taking part, I do hope you’ll consider joining us!

It's Not The Trial That Makes Us Strong

It’s Not The Trial That Makes Us Strong – 
Today’s Marriage Prayer 

Dear Heavenly Father,

It isn’t the trial itself that makes us grow stronger. Instead, it’s experiencing a situation that is out of our control being handled perfectly by You for our good, and for Your glory. We know that all things work together for good to them that love You, to them who are the called according to Your purpose.

1 Peter 5:10 tells us that You perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle us. We’re comforted by the words in verse 6 that say, You lift us up in due time. Not in our time, not according to our wisdom, not on our terms… but on Yours.

Father, just as the disciples did, we ask that You increase our faith. Help us to humble ourselves—to let go of our own will and exchange it for Yours. Teach us to be patient when the waiting is tough. Remind us to search Your word daily that we might grow in wisdom and strength.

It’s not the trial itself that makes us strong, it’s You.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Today’s Bible Verse

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 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. To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. – 1 Peter 5:8-11, KJV


Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. – 1 Peter 5:8-11, NIV
