Is God Good? - Rejoicing Even in the Trials!



Is God good? Why do even His children suffer? Death always makes an unexpected visit...even before the grave. Forced to taste death even from our first cry. So, again...is our God good? How can He be good in all this suffering? Well, in  a small mini-series, I shall try to answer these questions starting with Rejoicing Even in the Trials!;

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. --James 1:2-3

God loves each of His children, but that doesn't mean He's gonna buckle down and take all our trials away. We need to be able to transform into the likeness of Christ, and we can only do that through the testing of our faith.

"It's not your situations that needs to change...you need to change!" --Mike Donehey

For all the trials that come to us goes through God's hands first... But fear not He knows what will mold you, and how to hold you... So, be enduring, learn the patience that God is teaching you in the classroom of LIFE! Allow Him to prepare your spiritual endurance and stamina through the flames of trials...soon you will be as refined gold!

[Side Note: I know the pain of the trials as much as the next person. I am not saying that I am all better because of this...on the contrary, I am speaking to myself as much as I am to you. I struggle daily with faith. Makes you wonder sometimes...if I truly know what I'm doing...and the truth of the matter is...I'M CLUELESS! Hallelujah that there is grace, right? And in the midst of these Words of Faith....I'm just allowing the Truth to wash over me... Because usually, I hide in the muddy-gloop of sin's lies instead. I've never been one to stand firm and be true on my own volition. Sometimes, I even wonder if I truly have God in my heart... But, the point in me saying this is...I know what it's like and by experience, I hope to learn to exercise what I know!]

In Christ Alone,
Ari
