Trials

TRIALS

Trials, those who upset us, situations and circumstances that occur, are not the hopeless things that we might feel that they are, or what they even seem to be, according to our own perception and understanding based on our own personal experience. What difference does it make what they say or do to us anyway?


Think about it. It is all trivial in comparison to the opportunities they present for learning wisdom. They present themselves to make us stronger in faith and in spirit. In reality, these are our teachers. In other words they are simply procedures for the journey. There's an old saying; "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear". Things and people who upset our human nature the most, are our best teachers; but it is a work from the inside out; Mal 3:1-3, Heb 4:12, Lk 3:16, 12:49.

Rev 20:4-6 declares that we will rule and reign with Christ on the new earth for a thousand years. Do you think we will reign with our unregenerate carnal, egocentric attitudes and ideologies, alongside of the the Glorious King of kings who is Spiritual, Holy and perfect? That's the reason He said for us to be holy; to be perfect. In other words, we need to grow up! Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might! That's why Paul admonishes us to have the Mind of Christ. He is coming for a bride without spot or blemish, is He not? Let me interject here that an indulged, in-depth study in Ecclesiastes can teach us a lot on this. This hu-man existence and the suffering of this present time is trivial in comparison to the resurrection power of Jesus Christ that He has placed in us because of what He has done! It is a gift.
