We often times don’t know who we really are until we encounter adversity. Trials, tribulations, and persecutions show who we are, they show what is inside of us.
In this Sword of the Spirit 180 video, Pastor Scott calls us to remember God’s work in us.
We will all fail at some point. We will all go through trials that will cause us to despair. It is in these times that we should look up and thank God for His goodness. We should thank God that the work of redemption has been finished in Jesus. We should make our boast in Him.
It is easy for us to think that the purpose of trials is the enemy’s way to cause us to stumble. Though that is the intention of the devil, God wants to use these tests to bring us closer to Himself. He wants us to bless Him in all things and for all things.
Let us look at our trials and our failures in a different light today. Believe that these tests are God’s way of building a greater dependency on Him. He wants to use these things to cause us to run into His arms. He has loved us from the foundation of the world.
“I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
