Romans 8:28-39

Charles Spurgeon, the famous British preacher and Bible commentator from the late 1800s said, “Trials teach us what we are; they dig up soil and let us see what we are made of.”

Anyone who has done any gardening understands the importance of soil that has been dug up and loosened. Nothing can grow or even be planted in soil that is tightly packed. The roots must have room to spread and stretch and seek out important nutrients in order for the plant above ground to grow and bear its fruit.

James puts it another way, “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:2-4).

If you are facing a trial today, don’t despair. God will use this trial to grow your roots down more deeply in Him, so you can mature and bear fruit. Look for His hand. Trust Him today.
