"Every detail works to your advantage and to God's Glory." 2 Corinthians 4:15. Trials are indispensable to our spiritual growth. In fact, we cannot grow as we should without them, as much as we might wish we could. Trials can make us feel helpless, trials are indispensable to our spiritual growth but we do have control over one vital element of a trial - how we respond to it. It's your test that leads to your testimony!

"So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him' ... 'Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. "Quick, get up!" he said, and the chains fell off Peter's wrists'. ...  'When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John, also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying.

But be transformed by the renewing of your mind. -Romans 12:2 Your mind--the way you think--has a lot to do with the quality of your life.  Proverbs 23:7 says:  For as he thinks in his heart so is he. What you keep your mind on will determine whether you will be at peace or whether you will be full of anxiety in this troubled world. Philippians 4:6-8 tell us: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your requests....

We have no need to faint and no need to fear. When we are in Christ, we don't gauge our future by what the stock market does. We don't gauge our future by what the news reporters say. We gauge our standing in this life by the word of God which lives and abides forever. So I'm telling you today, don't look at all the things you are reading in the newspaper. Instead look to God. So, know what time it is and don't be troubled. Don't be frightened. Don't be full of fear.

You have to have current faith, current Word, and current revelation to deal with the current problem. If you do not, you will wind up trying to catch up. Yet, mentally you will think, "Well, I don't understand. I know this situation. I understand this, I have been taught this..." but you are not current. Operating in the things of the Spirit is, "what have you done lately?" What have you done lately to build yourself up in faith? What are you doing right now?

If Jesus had not given His life, then we would be doomed for eternal destruction. He looked past whether or not we deserved it - because we didn't-- and gave His life in spite of us. Therefore, it is no wonder that we ought to be willing to show some sign before other men that we love the Lord. With all that God has given us, we ought to. let the world know that there is a Name that we are submitted to...

God has given you His Word and His Spirit as a defense against the devil's schemes. You've been clothed in the armor of God so "...that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil" (Ephesians 6:11). You have everything needed to defeat the devil whenever he shows up at your door. He will keep showing up because you possess something that he desperately wants-your God-given authority to rule and reign in the earth.

Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:18-19 (KJV) There is power in agreement, unity and love...

You know a lot of times people do good deeds but it's not out of their heart, it's because they want to be seen; it's because they want to be exalted.  They want people to put them on a pedestal because of what they do and how much they have.  But Jesus is our greatest example of humility; that if we humble ourselves, God Himself will exalt us.  It says, "Therefore God has highly exalted Him..."
