    1 Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

    The trials of our faith in how they would lead us to give glory to God is by Him enabling us to trust the Lord even through difficult times that otherwise, we would not, nor could not, see ourselves go through even with Him.

    Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

    Peter walking on the water of the sea in going out to Jesus from the boat in the midst of the storm where the waves of the storm took his eyes off of Jesus causing Peter to sink is a prime example of how our reliance is on the Lord all the time in stead of any confidence in ourselves in trusting Him.

    The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak therefore what is impossible with man, is possible with God shows why we would glorify God for the faith He has given us to place in Him as He really is keeping us from falling.

    Since one of the fruits of the Spirit is faith, God is able to increase our faith when we seem to be lacking. Truly, He deserves our praise & thanksgiving as we are the works of His hands.

    Psalm 100: 3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

    Psalm 118:8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

    Jude 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
