Trouble can actually affirm the evidence of your faith, and not only that, but can also be the key to activating God’s power in your life. “Through your faith, God is protecting you by his power” 1 Pet 1:5 NCV. Your faith is what activates the power of God. Before a stone becomes a diamond it’s just carbon put under millions of pounds of pressure. The Bible says, “Their purpose [troubles} is to prove that your faith is genuine” 1 Pet 1:7 TEV. Trouble not only places a demand on your faith, but reveals the depth of it. You don’t really know much about your faith when your bills are paid, your body is healthy, your children are acting right, and your marriage is intact. But when all hell is breaking loose and you trust God to bring you through it, you know you’ve got faith. So, keep working it. Through God’s power it can only get stronger.
