'FIERY TRIAL'

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you" - 1 Peter 4:12
.
There's a difference between fiery trial and the problem caused by the enemy.
.
Fiery trial is to test a man while the problem caused by the enemy is to steal, kill or destroy. God tested Job, although he never knew God was behind the scene. However, it was the enemy that altered a woman's posture for 18 years through infirmity (Luke 13:10-13).
.
Fiery trial is aimed at humbling a person, also done to test them and to do them good at the latter end (Deut. 8:16) but the problem caused by the enemy has no good than to completely destroy.
.
God is usually the brain behind fiery trial while the devil masterminds problems, affliction, infirmity and the likes.
.
Oftentimes, we usually think something strange is happening to us when we pass through some fiery trial in life because we do not know the cause.
.
God uses fiery trial to shapen a man or use it to mould him to His will. More so, He may allow the enemy to make us go through some painful ordeals in life but at the end, He will overturn their plan. This happened in the cause of Joseph and his brothers (Gen. 45).
.
Not all delay is caused by the enemy, it could be God's handwriting to rewrite a new and better chapter in your life.
.
And because we don't understand God's dealing in our lives, we often think all trials are caused by the enemy. Instead of us to ask Him in prayers (Gen. 25:22), we react to find means of getting out of it.
.
Can you prayerfully find out the cause of your problem? Please do!
