When we experience trials in life, we usually ask God to deliver us from them. We want them to go away, and that is understandable. God often does deliver us as we stand in faith, but there are also times when He chooses to take us through them, and that requires greater faith. It is easy on our emotions when we get what we want, but it requires a great faith in God and steadfastness if we don't. Whether God delivers us from something difficult or gives us the grace to go through it, it is up to Him, and we should receive His choice graciously, knowing that His way is always best. We receive strength in struggle! When life is easy, we don't really make spiritual progress, but when we must stand firm, we grow! Be patient with God's choices and trust Him. His way is not our way, but it is always the best way!
