Why is the Lord permitting trails?
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, James 1:2
First of all understand, Lord will never brings tough times into the life of His children for the word says “Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.” Jam 1:13. Then why is Lord is permitting us to fall into troubles which is result of attacks of the evil one and also the consequences of our mistakes.
The word says the result of trails is patience, and patience perfects all works in us that we will not lack anything. “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.” Jam 1:3,4. Lord makes us more like Him and puts devil to humiliation when He leads us victoriously out of our tough times.
Lord, I am thanking you for the state I am in. Victory is surely in our side. Lord you have already kept a way of escape. What a loving Father we have. Amen.
