“Turn your eyes towards Me,” says the Lord, “For when your faith is tested, the fire is much kinder when your focus is on Me. Remember the fire of testing that came upon Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They embraced the test and the testimony of their trial resulted in My renown throughout the Babylonian kingdom. I am able to do exceeding, abundantly beyond all that you ask or think. Persevere, endure without complaining, and hold on to your faith because it will emerge with great plunder.”

“Consider it pure joy my brothers, whenever you face various trials, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”
– James 1:2-3

“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
