Opportunities to Discover Genuine Faith

genuine faithWhile on a hike on the Lundy Canyon Trail my wife literally stumbled upon what we think is gold. We were on a part of the trail where miners used to work the hills. Recent landslides could have exposed hidden deposits of the shiny stuff. So we brought some samples home to find out whether it was really gold or pyrite “fool’s gold.” The only way to found out, though, is to test it by crushing or chemical methods.
It’s the same with our faith – is it the real deal or “fool’s gold”? The only way to know is to test it. “For a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine.” (1 Peter 1:6-7)
In the Freedom process it takes the power of God to exercise the truth once you have processed out the lie. We must be in circumstances, however, which we can’t handle on our own – the life’s crushers – in order to experience this kind of power. Thus, we can look as trials as something bad, which only makes us want our drugs of choice; or, we can see them as opportunities to discover if our faith works in the real world in which we live. You’ll be much happier in choosing the later.
