The Trial of Your Faith 

“That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:7

And James 1:13 tells us, “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man.”

Now, some people get confused between temptations and trials, and the difference between the two is this. Trials are sent by God to cause us to stand. Temptation to sin is sent by the devil to cause us to stumble.

One is meant for our maturity. The other is meant for our misery.

James used this word interchangeably. While God does not cause both kinds, God allows both kinds, and He will use both to make us more like Jesus.

Are you in the furnace of affliction? Do you feel you’re being tempted? Trust in God to see you through.
