My wise and trustworthy God, according to Your Word, trials come to me so that my faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed (1 Pet. 1:7).

Father, You have told me that the testing of my faith develops perseverance (James 1:3). Please help me to not refuse to be faithful in tests granted for my gain.

Help me, Lord, not to become weary in doing good, for at the proper time I will reap a harvest if I do not give up (Gal. 6:9).
