” Various Trials “


As Christians we are to cease from living as we once did in a life of the flesh not being concerned with any involvement of sin. But when turning to the Lord with a repentant heart so starts a trial we may not expect, yet so needed if we understand the reproach and sufferings of the one we now follow. (1 Peter 4:1-6).  Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.



Although it does not seem a joyous time when going through a trial of any kind, if it be for serving Christ then our faith being tried works patience for our good. (James 1:2-4).  My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.



If we do what is right then it does not bother us if God were to test us and try our hearts, but it is the way God has chosen to repay us the fruit of our doings. (Jeremiah 17:9-10).  The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

  1. Dear Julia… Yes indeed, when we TURN to the LORD, we certainly will experience trials and testings, to see if we will HOLD FAST to TRUTH, to see if we will HOLD FAST to JESUS, or to see if we will return unto the “easy route” where there is no trial of our FAITH.

    However, the truth is that we will ALWAYS HAVE TRIALS… whether we be in or out of The LORD, whether we choose JESUS or refuse HIM+.

    TRIALS are a given part of our human existence.

    For myself, I would rather have The LORD JESUS walking with me THROUGH THE TRIALS than to walk alone, without His+ Divine Guidance, without His+ Divine Help, and without His+ pleasure resting upon me when I am obedient to The WORD.+

    Why ANYONE would choose to face the trials of life alone, without The LORD JESUS, is totally beyond my comprehension.

    We KNOW that the satan only comes to kill, to steal from, and to destroy us… mind, body, and soul. Human flesh CANNOT — is not capable — of withstanding the wiles of the devil WITHOUT THE HELP OF OUR LORD JESUS.

    HE+ has given us, in His+ great love for mankind, the means to have VICTORY: and that means lies in our OBEDIENCE TO HIS+ WORD. To do “IT” His+ Way, whatever trial or testing faces us.

    HE+ NEVER ABANDONS His+ Followers who try their utmost to WALK IN OBEDIENCE to HIM+.

    Our HOLY HEAVENLY FATHER has given us the way to have victory over every trial through our GLORIFIED LORD JESUS CHRIST !

    It is WRITTEN: HIS Right Hand and HIS HOLY ARM has given us the VICTORY.

    IF … IF…. IF we walk in OBEDIENCE to that “RIGHT HAND ” and HOLY ARM, HE+ will pull us victoriously through every testing, every trial we will ever face.

    May The LORD bless you, dear sister, for this good post and for walking WITH HIM+ through the trials and testings of life.

    In JESUS
    Who+ alone is Life
    both here and beyond the grave…
