Pastor's Devotional
The Test of Trials 5.9.21
The Test of Trials 5.9.21

Bruce Goettsche • May 09, 2021

If you fail under pressure,
your strength is too small.
(Proverbs 24:10).

We do not know how strong our faith is until a time of crisis. It is in the trials we see if our faith will hold.

In light of this, there are two things to remember. First, trials will come to every life. Generally, they come suddenly. A health issue, an accident, a job loss, a crime committed against you, a fire, or a natural disaster. It can happen in many ways and at any time.

Second, since we know trials will come we must prepare for them now. How? By developing a deeply rooted faith. We do this through attentively doing what the Bible says and by developing a sincere prayer life. Part of growing in the knowledge of Scripture is being involved in small group Bible Study, reading each day on your own, and attending a church that systematically teaches the Word of God.

The best way to meet trials is to be prepared. Deep roots of faith allow you to stand no matter how hard the winds of circumstance blow against you.
