- Being saved (according to Acts 2:38) is an amazing, wonderful experience and yields an awesome life here and the promise of eternal life as well!
- Contrary to some popular preaching and teaching, the Scriptures teach us that going through trials is a part of the Christian walk.
- While the trials do not feel good to the flesh, they are purposeful, needed—and GOOD for us.
- In all that we go through, God is ALWAYS with us (See Hebrews 13:5).
20 Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,
21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered (Hebrews 5:8).
I Timothy 4:1-5
1 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:
2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables
5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you (I Thessalonians 5:18).
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
And He [Jesus] spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint (Luke 18:1).
So…what are your initial reaction to trials? How challenging will it be to adjust your attitude straightaway? (I know I need to be really mindful!) Let’s talk some more about this—head down to the comment section so we can continue our dialogue!
