Faith has to be tested, or else how can you tell how strong yours actually is? It's easy to say "All is well," while you're on the beautiful mountain top, but what happens when you get to the ugly valley? Will those same words come out of your mouth? The tests you go through will either strengthen your faith or kill it. Keep your eyes on Christ while going through tests and your faith will be strengthened. Take your eyes off of Him, Who is indeed our Ultimate Prize, and your faith might be dealt a heavy blow.
Faith has to be your greatest possession, especially during times of conflict. Or how can you move forward when everything you see around you appears to be dark and gloomy? Hence, we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians. 5:7). Keep walking 'til you ultimately see light, keeping in mind that God did not promise us the absence of trouble, but He promised us His presence through it all (Deuteronomy 31:6; Hebrews 13:5).
I just want to encourage and inspire as many people as I can for Jesus Christ.
