"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations, knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience." God brings about afflictions and trials to test our faith and help it grow.
"Whom He loves. He chastens (Heb. 12:6). the word "chastens" means to wear out and or make tired. I don't mean a tired feeling from doing a good days work but a bone weary tired, where you can feel it from the top of your head to the soles of your feet.
When i was a young christian, i prayed that my faith would grow in leaps and bounds and be so great, that i might ask of the Lord anything and i would get it johnny on the spot. (Wrong motives) I began to see that with faith comes hardships, worries and even sickness.
Why would we need the Lord, if troubles never came and why would iwe ask him for that faith, if we didn't need him? Faith comes from hearing the word of God, "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17 (KJV
People do not read the Bible because of:
laziness or lack of discipline
faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must
believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and
be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your
minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God -what is good and
acceptable and perfect. Romans 12.2.
Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil. The Holy Spirit has a desire to lead us but many refuse to follow and it is at that point in ourlives that we stop learning about God's will for us and wisdom departs.
I have seen many people who can open their mouths and out flows verse after verse of the bible but it takes a deep hearted desire to repentnce and determination to turn our lives over to the Lord and seek what we're hearing with more understanding and apply it to our day to day lives (24/7)
