Tests of faith

For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  James 1:3

If what we think of God is dependent on how nice He makes our lives or how obvious He makes His presence, tests of faith will affect what we believe about Him. It’s not about whether we are strong enough to stand against the tide alone but rather whether we will continue to trust in His power, love, and protection when the waves knock us down.

Lord, I know you are still for me and with me even when I feel vulnerable and alone.
