Trials Are Opportunities

Written by KCC Devotion Team  |  Found in: Empowered

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man.” 1 Corinthians 10:13a

Every Christian will go through trials or tests.  During these trials, you must be steadfast in your faith, never doubting God’s love for you or His nature of goodness.  Trials are a part of the human experience, so rather than try to avoid them, learn to go through them.  As a believer, you have the benefit of going through the tests of life with God, and God has never lost a battle.  Therefore, we can go through our trial with joy, seeking wisdom and praising God during the entire time.  Trials are opportunities for the believer to test their spiritual muscle.  Trials solidify your resolve in God’s goodness.  It is one thing to believe God for increase when you have just received a raise on your job, but it is an entirely different story to believe God for increase when you are standing in an unemployment line.  When we remain resolute in spite of our troubles, we showcase our faith in God during difficult times.  Deliverance from trials is a process and not an event, and we must maintain our confessions while seeking to grow from the experience.  Spiritual maturity can take place when we are able to maintain our faith, and remain determined in the middle of a storm.
