It’s A Faith Trial

That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of JESUS Christ:

1 Peter 1:7

“Until your faith fails, it is impossible for the devil to defeat you.”

Every trial in your life is designed to end in glory and honour. When you are going through trials, what is actually being tried is not you but your faith. The Bible calls it the trial of your faith – it is your faith that is being tried, to see whether you will give up, to see whether you will surrender, to see whether you will throw in the towel, to see whether you will backslide, to see whether you will still hold on. Apostle Paul said in the Book of Romans 8:35 – “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shalltribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”

It is doesn’t matter what is going in your life, there is glory and honour waiting for you on the other side. Never give up, never surrender, in fact if anything, that is when to do overtime in the school of faith. That is when to believe God the more. That is when to meditate the more. That is when to confess the more. That is when to celebrate the more. You’ve got to mock the devil ‘cause you know there is glory and honour waiting on the other side if you refuse to surrender.

JESUS said to Peter, “…Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail…” Luke 22:31-32

Satan cannot have you until your faith fails. Satan can never defeat you until your faith fails. What you call situation or problem, what you are telling stories about is a faith trial. Whatever the trial is, glory and honour is what you are receiving at the end. It won`t end in shame, in the Name of JESUS.

Just Do It

  • In the face of any trial, refuse to panic in fear, refuse to surrender to the enemy in defeat.
  • The way to handle the trials of your faith is to stay strong in the Word. Let your eyes be fixed on the Word of God.


  • My Father, strengthen my faith and cause it never to fail, in the Name of JESUS.
  • I receive new grace today to thresh down every trial of my faith and emerge victorious, in the Name of JESUS.
