The enemy is a liar! Just because you may experience some struggles in life doesn’t mean you’re failing in life!! James 1:2-4 (MSG) reminds us to, “Consider it a sheer gift when tests and challenges [struggles] 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.” God takes everything crappy thing about lives and He turns them for his glory and our good. Can I get a witness? Y’all know their stories and y’all also know their conclusions were far better than their dilemmas. Coming to the witness stand: Job and his trifling friends, David’s plight and fight, weeping Jeremiah, and 3x denying Peter? Many of us sojourn through struggles that test our faith however; there is no faith worth having that is not tested by fire. As our faith becomes more refined it becomes more precious than gold because it lasts. I Peter 1:7 confirms, “These trials [sufferings] show that your faith is genuine. It has been tested as fire tests and purifies gold-though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise, glory, and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world!”
