Thankful For Trials And Tests?

iurby Hazel Straub

How many times have you cried out to God for deliverance from challenging circumstances that brought discomfort? We like comfort not hardship and trials. Yet it is those most difficult things that brings maturity, wisdom and a deeper faith walk with Jesus.  Tests humble us and make us more God dependent. They bring accelerated growth and a new awareness of how God works for our good in our lives.

Thank God for challenging circumstances and people! Thorns and thistles make you mature.

Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way. (James 1:2-4 MSG)
