With the merciful thou will shew thyself merciful and with the upright man thou will shew thyself upright. With the pure thou will shew thyself pure and with the froward thou will shew thyself unsavoury – 1 Samuel 22 ; 26 – 27

Mosrt times when trials come our way, we forget what God has said about us or what He has permitted us to see through His grace.
”Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of Thee and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, suffer it to be so now, for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness.Then he suffered Him
And Jesus when he was baptized, went up straightaway out of the water and lo, the heavens were opened unto Him and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting upon Him.
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” – Matthew 3 : 13 – 17.
John the Baptist had this experience with Jesus. He knew quite right that He is the Son of God. He was opportuned by the grace of God to have such experience but when trials came, what happened? God knows what our strength can take..He know us better than we know ourselves no matter what we think about ourselves.
”Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples and said unto Him, art thou He that should come, or do we look for another?
Jesus answered and said unto them, go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see” – Matthew 11: 2 – 4.
Since The Lord did not go for his rescue, his thought about Jesus changed. He forgot the experience he had with Him.
Brethren, many of us are like that today. God, through His grace will do the impossible which we think that there is no way out. When little more trials comes our way, we will forget the great and numerous things that He has done before, We will forget that He is in the same place He was, when the first trial came to us, we will forget that He was in the same place when Jesus Christ was arrested, tried, crucified, died, buried and resurrected. He never change position because His love is constant. It is only we that change our position.
May He give us the grace to keep on tyrusting Him no matter the trials we are passing through in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness, thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress, have mercy upon me and hear my prayer – Psalm 4 : 1
If My people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land – 2 Chronicles 7 ; 14
