For believers, trials reveal the grace of God working in our lives by granting us spiritual strength to stand when various trials way down on us. Steadfastness involves a willful submission to remain under discomfort while standing firm without grumbling. It is a hall mark and sure sign of genuine faith. Spurgeon said, “The master-works of God are those men who stand in the midst of difficulties, steadfast, unmovable.” Let this design remind you to let trials run their course while you remain faithful to Christ and stand strong in His grace.
“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” (James 1:2-3)
