1 Peter 4:12 NASB "Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though something strange were happening to you"I should have known it was going to be that way! Today's verse speaks about fiery trials, and how they come for the testing of our faith! I was late, really late and it seemed that at every step, things were going wrong. While getting dressed, a button popped off my shirt, the shoestring broke, I walked out of the house and forget the important paperwork I needed and had to turn back to get it. Finally heading in the right direction, I got behind a school bus who seemed to stop and pick up every kid on the block, and then the accident that closed the road I was on with nowhere to turn around. I finally sat back and said to myself, "who is in control?!" I needed to realize that I had to put my faith in Christ, that God was in control and not me. The meeting finally went well and everything turned out ok and I learned that He really is in control! Let's not lose sight of Him while the fiery trials come and they will come!! peace, tom
