What is your first reaction when a friend has a trial in their life? Do you pour words of encouragement on them? Bible versus? Love and affection? My first reaction is a little different, I usually want to punch the person who is causing the trial. Yes, this does seem a little harsh. But harsh I am. Now I didn't say I did it, but I do want to. My second thought is how can I make this go away for her. And as you all know we can't, but He can. He can and will. The Lord promises us in His word:
1 Peter 5:10 ESV
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
When a friend has a trail. Go first to the author of all TRUTH. Seek His word and speak them to your friend. Encourage them to seek Him. Matthew tells us how to address conflict. James tell us we will be tested. Romans tells us to endure. And Philippians is my favorite "Philippians 4:6 ESV
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. "
