Gold-Tuesday Truth

In this rejoice, through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 
1 Peter 1:6-7 ESV

Nothing makes us cling to God more than suffering. You wish that wasn’t the case. I wish that wasn’t the true. But oh well. That’s just the way it is. Think about your normal Bible study routine (if you even have one). Think about your normal prayer schedule. No matter how often you do either; for most of God’s children we increase both when we suffer.

When we realize that no one else can help then we turn to God. We were made to cling to Him voraciously. The trials you are enduring are a good thing; if you are allowing them to purify you. Jesus wants to spend more time with you. Christ wants to saturate your mind with His Word. God wants to purge your spirit so that you can walk into your divine calling.
