Testing our faith

Many believers shrink back to old ways when trials become too tough. Trials come to all believers because trials test our faith. How we respond to the trials that come our way, determines our ability to move forward. If we respond incorrectly, we'll have to repeat the trial. The Lord is bringing us to maturity so that we will be true witnesses for Him. Jesus was tempted in every way and yet, failed not. The victory is in Jesus, so remaining in Jesus is the only way to attain the same victory. Once the testing is complete, we lack nothing. No lack is awesome. We have complete confidence in the Lord for everything and nothing rattles our faith.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. - James 1:2-4
