1 Corinthians 10:13, NKJV “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”

Each one of us will have pressure we have to bear.
We must become aware there will be times to endure, be faithful, and not give up until God removes the pressure or sends relief. If we don’t give up, we get to enjoy God’s blessings. Pressures and stress are not about how you’re doing as much as who you are becoming. God wants us to focus on His faithfulness, not our failures. God will never give you more than you can bear with Him and you together.

Zechariah 13:39, NKJV “And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people’ and they will say ‘The Lord is great.”

Testing and refining, then the rewards and rejoicing.
Once refined, we will find our purpose and plan. Whatever you are lacking the most is where you are suffering the most. It Is the very ministry God is trying to use you in. Very few people learn without suffering. Don’t waste the purpose of the suffering and pain.
