Revelation 12:11 (KJV)

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death

Because we live in a fallen world, all of us will face times of suffering and heartache.

Sometimes God keeps us from certain trials and heartaches, but at other times He allows them, knowing that the testing strengthens and perfects our faith in Him.

God wants us to have an unshakable faith- and if trials, tests, and suffering are what it takes for us to have it, then He’ll allow them.

Even the strongest faith in God does not mean we will be spared life’s trials.

Daniel’s faith was severely tested, but he emerged victorious. Daniel refused to compromise his love for God by worshiping King Darius. He also understood that his obedience to God would jeopardize his life (see Dan. 6:16)-but he chose the path of other faithful believers who “did not love their lives to the death” (Rev. 12:11).

Many of God’s greatest saints-those in the Bible and others throughout Christian history – faced varying degrees of suffering. All of them, however, developed an unshakable faith that provided the inner strength they needed to face every difficulty with hope and blessed assurance.

Do you have an unshakable faith?

Are you in an extreme place of testing?

If so, do not be afraid. God has planned this very moment, and He will teach you how to trust Him perfectly.

A person with an unshakable faith never judges God’s faithfulness by his or her feelings; instead, he or she believes and trusts God through many seasons of life, knowing that in the end, God’s plan will emerge as perfect.

At times in your walk with God, He may require you to do something that from a human perspective, seems unreasonable.

From His viewpoint however, it will be in perfect alignment with His Word and will turn out for your ultimate benefit.

His goal is that you acquire a “perfect faith” –but He knows your weaknesses. Open your heart to His love and give Him the opportunity to prove His faithfulness. That is what Daniel did, and God made it possible for him to walk away from the lion’s Den with a song of victory on his lips.

What is your level of faith in God?

Do you believe that he will do exactly what He has promised?

Are you convinced that He has already moved heaven and earth for you, and all you have to do is move toward His blessings?
