 CHALLENGES WITH GOD

Storm.If someone were to tell you that as a Christian your life will be problem-free, they wouldn't be telling you the whole story.

God wants us to grow in our walk with Him more and more so.  One way He causes us to grow is by taking us through difficult situations. Even though they're not fun, it's during the difficult times that we are more likely to listen to the Lord than when we are perfectly content and comfortable.

THE BIBLE SAYS:

"Dear brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an opportunity for joy.  For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything." (James 1:2-4)

 WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU STUMBLE

Climbing.What do you do when you stumble?

You've given your life to Jesus Christ. You'll soon find that this doesn't mean you're instantly perfect. When you sin, simply confess your sin, repent, and continue on in your walk with God.

THE BIBLE SAYS: "If we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong." (1 John 1:9)

Also, the Bible teaches that there is a real devil, Satan, who is our enemy. Satan's objective is to pollute all the good that God has brought about in your life by causing you to stumble and fall back into sin. But the Bible says that you can "resist the Devil, and he will flee from you." (James 4:7b).

Now, let's look at some tools you'll need to keep you from stumbling in your new walk with God.
