Read an Excerpt


Trials are unavoidable-but that doesn't mean they have to be unprofitable. When God tests you, it's time to learn another lesson so you can move to the next spiritual level. Like a good teacher in school, God tests us to prepare us for the next grade in life. We often complain that our trials are too hard for us, but think about it. Aren't you glad you aren't still struggling with the same temptations and obstacles you faced as a new believer (if that is truly the case)? I sincerely hope that if you have been a Christian for some time, you have made enough spiritual progress that you can look back and say, "Oh yes, I used to really wrestle with that issue. But I've learned some valuable lessons that have made that problem seem to fade away." Now don't misunderstand. I'm not talking about being perfect, but about growing toward the maturity. There are some other things you need to know about the trials God sends. Like a good teacher, God only tests you on information that is available to you in His Word. It is a poor teacher who tests students on information that they never had a chance to study. So if you are going through a trial, you can ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the truth or the lesson God wants you to know.
