Trials, Tribulations and Temptations
Thursday, January 17, 2013
Are you one of those people that have trials, tribulations and temptations coming at you what seems like a lot? Or are you one of those that everything in your life goes without any challenges? Well, let me tell you something…If you never are faced with any challenges then there is something not right in your life because satan is not bothering with you because he doesn’t have too! He is already in control of your life!
When you love God, have faith in Him and are sharing your love for Him in not just words, but in how you live your life, then you will have trials, temptations, challenges popping up! Then you can be sure you are on the right track! The more you love Him, honor Him, obey Him and His Word and share Him, the stronger the trials, temptations and challenges! The wonderful thing is that through all this, your faith and trust become stronger! You learn who you are in Christ Jesus. That you are in this world but not of this world. You learn to stand on God’s Word, to take the Authority you have been given In Jesus’ Name! You learn who your Provider, your Source is and you can actually “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 The Message.
God Bless you today as you grow, become strengthened and mature in God, His Word and His Love!
Love and Blessings In Jesus’ Name,
