READ: James 1:2-12
Webster’s Dictionary describes a Trial as “a test of the quality, value, or usefulness of something”
In Job chapters 1 and 2, Job had no idea that a heavenly conversation had taken place over his life and that all he would endure was a Trial that would prove his life to be of great quality, value and usefulness. He was blameless and a man of integrity even though he faced horrendous loss and sickness.
James 1:2 says that we can “count it all joy when (not if) we face trials of many kinds”. Trials and tests in life will come. That is a given. However, God intends to prove you a man or woman of integrity and faithfulness to a world that is desperate to know that God is real.
RESPOND: What difficulty are you facing in life today? Is it a trial or just a set back? However you view your current situation and circumstance, remember this: God intends to prove you are valuable to Him. He is for you. Trust Him even on your hard days.
