Often we face challenges, this tests our faith, do we run, do we denounce it, does it change based upon circumstance?
1 Peter 1:7
“These trials are only to test your faith,
to show that it is strong and pure. It
is being tested as fire tests and purifies
gold, and your faith is far more precious to
God than mere gold. So if your faith remains
strong after being tried by fiery trials,
it will bring you much praise and glory and
honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed
to the whole world.”
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
What I’m doing now, taking a very hard look at my faith, what I really beleive, deep down, knowing full well, it will be tested, now and in the near future. The question is, how many of us are simply going through the motions, how many are fooling themselves into thinking, they are doing everything right, only to find they are deceiving themselves with a false humility, a false faith, a false belief system.
