Adrian Rodgers said, “Faith that hasn’t been tested can’t be trusted.” It was written by the notable self-help and spiritual author John C. Maxwell. It’s during the trying times in life that our faith seems weak and sometimes absent, however, the Bible teaches that it is in God’s design to refine His people like gold is refined in the fire. Maxwell understands and teaches this concept in his writings, knowing that our faith is strengthened, and deepened, by the tests and trials of life. However painful, and contrary to our natural thinking, trials are actually good for us: at least from God’s perspective. We should find encouragement in read James 1:2, “Count is all Joy when we experience trials…” If God is in control of prosperity is He not also in control of adversity? Tested faith confirms that at least you have faith!
