THREE TRUTHS ABOUT TRIALS

There is a difference between TEMPTATIONS and TRIALS. Temptations come from the Enemy on the outside to make us weaker. Trials come from the Father to make us stronger.

Scripture reminds us of three truths we must remember when we face a trial:

1. Trials come to every believer becuse true faith must be tested (Gen. 22:1 - Abraham).

2. Trials work FOR US, not against us (Romans 8:28, II Cor. 4:17; I Peter 1:7).

3. Trials help us to mature in patience (Romans 5:4, James 1:3-4).
