‘TRIBULATIONS’

SCRIPTURE READING: John 14:1, 27
MEMORY VERSE:
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. – 1 John 5: 4
Tribulum is a instrument that is used to separate the chaff in the grain from the wheat. Tribulum is the word from which we get our English word Tribulation. I like the reader of today’s devotion to appreciate that, in the world ye shall have tribulations (troubles, difficulties and trials) but be of good cheer that whatever is born of God overcomes the world.
The reason God allows troubles is because. It’s the tribulation in our lives that divides the chaff from the wheat. The trial and tribulations that come our way can make us bitter or they can make us better, the choice is ours.
The important thing is never to waste our pain but to invest it wisely in motivating ourselves to grow and to help encourage others to do the same. Sometimes you must rejoice in your suffering.
It produces perseverance, because whatever is born of God overcomes the world, and this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world? He who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 
FOR MEDITATION:
Do you know that problem can not kill you?
PRAYER:
In your own words pray seriously about the topic.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Whatever is born of God overcomes the world.
