Praise in Severe Trials

January 9, 2009

Many of God’s children are under severe trials; they are frequently tested. At such times, it is easy for them to turn their attention to their problems; it is easy for their eyes to be set on their own difficulties. The more a man is tested, the more he tends to look at himself or his environment. But for those who know God, the more they are tested, the more they learn to praise. Therefore, we must learn not to set our eyes on ourselves. We must learn to set our eyes on the Lord. We should lift up our heads and tell the Lord, “You are above everything; I praise You!”
