The Life Cycle Of A Trial - Part 2
Trials Originate And Are Initiated From Above

Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah - But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea - And the LORD God prepared a gourd - But God prepared a worm - and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken For I will shew him how great hings he must suffer for myname's sake - - Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. Jonah 1:17, Jonah 1:4, Jon 4:6, Jon 4:7, Mt 4:1, Ac 9:16 KJV

This is perhaps the most important aspect to grasp when it comes to understanding trials, and that is, each trialthat comes into our life both originates and is initiated from a Faithful Creator.1Pe 4:19

In fact, realizing this principle can mean the difference from “going from strength to strength” in our trials Ps 84:7, or to, “being like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”Jas 1:6

We are told in the Book of Hebrews that we are “to run with patience the race that is marked out for us.”
Hebrews 12:1 It was no different for Jesus for we read concerning His relationship to the Father that, “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered. Heb 5:8.

Job understood this arrangement as well, he declared, “What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?”
Job 2:10

Yes, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 And by the way, this can also be said of our trials. 1Pe 4:19

What are you facing today? Know this, that God has designed, originated, and is now conducting it
1Pe 5:10 He will provide all the grace you need to carry you through, if you but allow Him. Heb 4:16
