Challenges in our lives will never stop coming. Like waves that ebb and flow in strength and number, our trials and suffering come in and go out, but they never stop coming. The solution is to fix our eyes on God and the hope revealed in His Word. Ellie Holcomb’s song “Find You Here” reminds us that He is in the midst of each ordeal…even the darkest ones.
Peter knew he needed to prepare believers for fiery trials, too. Let’s let our song lead us there this week.
