Devotional: Life Has Its Tests

Christian Devotion about the testing times in life


Proverbs 19:21 Pic


1 Peter 4:12 Bar


"...Beloved, do not be amazed and bewildered at the fiery ordeal which is taking place to test your quality, as though something strange (unusual and alien to you and your position) were befalling you..."
- 1 Peter 4: 12 (AMP)


Life has times of hardship, struggles, trials, temptations, despair, loneliness and heartbreak. We all go through times like these from time to time. There is a saying that goes 'Life is a bed of Roses' implying it's easy and sweet. There's probably a lot of truth in that - considering the 'thorns', but it's far from easy and sweet. A prick can be painful! God can use what we go through to rely on Him more and build our character to be Christ-like.

So yes, I guess life can be like a bed of roses - but we need to be mindful of the thorns.

There are tests in life, I know
The thorns are there, but so is the rose.
