How to Successfully Overcome Trials - Part 2

Listen to podcast audio:

It is unfortunate but true that going through times of trial can make us more susceptible to temptation. This week, Press On Podcast host Keith Holloway explains the three temptations that Christians should recognize and resist, especially during difficult seasons of life.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • When we find ourselves in a time of trial it can be tempting to accuse God and doubt that he will use the trial for our good.

  • Followers of Christ are not only able to survive trials but thrive in times of difficulty.

  • During times of trial, we cannot allow our feelings and emotions to dictate our behavior, rather we must remain obedient to God and his Word.

  • God intends to bring you through every trail successfully.

  • In times of trial, it can be tempting to disengage from serving God, but we are instructed to continue doing good even when we are suffering.

  • James exhorts Christians to allow the Holy Spirit to bridle their tongue and remain unspotted from the world during trials.

  • The righteous will face many afflictions, but God will rescue them from them all.
