God’s Test of Faith
September 21, 2021

Thought for Today: “God’s Test of Faith”

The Apostle Peter said, “You have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:7)

But the question that arises is why such tests in the first place. Hopefully this next statement will help to explain.

“God tests our faith to see what part of our hearts need shoring up so that He can give to us the encouragement to obey. God doesn’t test our faith to see how badly we can fail, but to see how He can encourage us to succeed.”

When the problems of life come, not only is our faith tested, but so is our commitment to God. Will we remain faithful regardless of the outcome? Faith is saying okay, we will serve God no matter how things turn out.

When life’s challenges are bigger than we are, that is when our faith in God will see us through.
