Mark 9:23 (NKJV) All things are possible to him that believeth.
In our training of faith life, there must be room for the trial of faith.
The “all things” do not always come simply for the asking, for the reason that God is ever seeking to teach us the way of Faith.
In our training of faith life there must be room for the trial of faith, the discipline of faith, the patience of faith, the courage of faith.
Often times many stages are passed before we really realize what is the end of faith, namely, the victory of faith. Be advised a trial is a systematic process.
Did you know there is a process for your faith?
Real moral fiber is developed through the trial of faith. When you have made your request of God, but the answer does not come.
What are you doing? Or what are you doing now?
Remember you have to take your position of faith.
Keep on believing God’s Word; never be moved away from it by what you see or feel, and as you stand in your position of faith, enlarged power and experience are being developed.
The fact of looking at contradictions in your life as to God’s promised word and being unmoved from your position of faith will make you stronger.
Often God delays purposely, and the delay is just as much an answer to your prayers as is the fulfillment when it comes.
Never underestimate the power of your faith in God! What you believe determines what you receive, so make sure you are thinking and believing correctly as to your life’s situation.
Quote- “Always remember in the times of life, when your faith is on trial the burden of proof is on the Lord”. James Baker, Jr.
Point to ponder
In the lives of all the great Bible characters, God worked this way. Abraham, Moses, and Elijah were not great in the beginning but were made great through the trial of their faith, and only thus were they fitted for the positions to which God had called them.
There is no amount of persecution that has tried us like such experiences as these. When God has spoken of His purpose to do, and yet the days go on and He does not do it, that is truly hard; but it is a trial of faith that will bring us into a knowledge of God which would otherwise be impossible.
