The purpose of our trials

By Randell Tiongson on March 1st, 2010

If you are going through some trials at this moment, I hope this blog can be of some help to you.

People will go through trials — I personally look at trials as tests. When you know that the trial you are going through has a purpose, it makes going through it a little easier.

So why does God allow us to go through difficulties? Here are 3 probable reasons:

1) To accomplish His intentions – God has a bigger plan for us, beyond our comprehension and understanding. We only see things from our own perspective and find it difficult to see what’s in store for us. Read Genesis 45:5-8.

2) To develop our character – Here’s something to really think about: Growth is a painful process. The best teacher is experience and painful experiences either mold us or break us. Read Romans 5:3-4.

3) To discipline His children – if we don’t get the message right and we don’t heed the warnings, we need to learn the hard way. Read Hebrews 12:6.

The next time you go through some trials, smile! God has a plan for you and He loves you!
