Putting Us In The Fire

Quote 4 2day title logo Blog

No words can express how much the world owes to sorrow. Most of the Psalms were born in the wilderness. Most of the Epistles were written in prison. The greatest thoughts of the greatest thinkers have all passed through the first. The greatest poets have “learned in suffering what they taught in song.” In bonds, Bunyan lived the allegory that he afterwards wrote, and we may thank Bedford Jail for the Pilgrim’s Progress. Take comfort, afflicted Christian! When God is about to make pre-eminent use of a person, He puts them in the fire.

    Shayn Roby’s Take: Many times God molds us and shapes us through the darkest hours in our lives. Sometimes it helps to raise our hope if we sing praises to the Lord during the storms of our lives. That faith is often honored as He sends His Holy Spirit to comfort us and also gives us the strength to carry on.

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
