His Life Through Mine
We may wonder how we can have victories in our life even when it just seems impossible. The Bible is full of God's promises to us to help us during trials, temptations, and opposition, and we can see examples of other people's victories in their lives. It all boils down to our faith and trust in God. We don't go through trials in life because God is bored, but we go through trials as He is molding us more in His image and strengthening and stretching our faith. Trials and difficulties in our lives are how we spiritually grow and mature. If God took away all trials and opposition in our life after salvation, then our faith and trust in God would ultimately diminish. We cannot live without the power of God in our life to overcome the trials and opposition we face. It is only through His strength that we can have victories in our life. Our testimony of God working in our life will show others that they too can have victory in their lives when they have Jesus Christ. So, when facing opposition and trials today or through your week, remember that you have the greatest treasure within you who is bigger than the trials in your life.
Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
2 Corinthians 4:10-11 (KJV)
