How to Successfully Overcome Trials - Part 1

Listen to podcast audio:

At some point, everyone walks through heartbreak and pain. These trials threaten to shake our faith if we approach them with the wrong mindset. This week, Press On Podcast host Keith Holloway explains what it looks like to lead with faith and offers a simple encouragement: you can profit from every trial in your life.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • We know that trials, tribulation, and suffering are part of this life, but they are causing many Christians to fall away or become engulfed in fear, doubt, and unbelief.

  • Trials are events that take place in our life and temptation is the effect—will we trust that God is working this out for our good?

  • It is God’s intention for the Christian to endure every trial and receive the victor’s crown.

  • In the midst of your trial, don’t give into the temptation to question God’s goodness and accuse him of tempting you.

  • The psalms tell us that the righteous will face many afflictions, but God will be faithful to rescue us from them all.
