This article draws on Scripture to encourage those who are undergoing trials to trust in God.
What should a believer's reaction to suffering look like? This article discusses James' exhortation in James 1:2 which encourages Christians to rejoice in trials. This joy acts as a testimony to the world of the presence of the Lord Jesus in the believer's life. To withdraw and dwell in self-pity is to sin against God, who has blessed us with many things in this life and the next.
Christians face temptations every day which challenge their faith and resolve. Is there any comfort in the midst of so many daily trials and temptations? Our comfort rests in God’s faithfulness and sovereign will. Christ, who also faced temptation, supports his church. The power to conquer temptation lies not in ourselves but in Christ.
