We will face tough times and trials. Our faith will be tested. Our natural response is to complain when difficulties come our way! We want to be happy and we are frustrated when it alludes us. We are even annoyed at God for not making us happy and protecting us from difficulties. But God allows trials and tests to come because they are essential to help us grow. God uses trials to help us identify and remove the impurities from our lives. God’s goal for us is not our happiness, but our holiness! Will we cooperate with the refining work of God or fight him?
