Trials Test Our Faith

Spring is often a time of new beginnings, and these pivotal life events can present challenges. Maybe you’re the high school graduate faced with decisions about college, or the college graduate with extensive debt who is looking for a job. Maybe you’re the newlyweds trying to figure it all out, the first-time parents who can’t find answers in a book, or the lonely heart hoping for the dawn of a new friendship.

Trials test our faith in God. When the answers are not readily available, it is easy to question God’s presence. In Joshua 18:3, Joshua asked the Israelites, “How long will you wait before you begin to take possession of the land that the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?” Before the Israelites could enjoy the land God had given them, they had to have the faith to act on His promise.

God provides for every living thing in every season of life. Sometimes, we just need the faith to take hold of what He’s already given to us.
