When experiencing trial/pressure…

Ask yourself the famous 4…

  • Then what’s the lesson I need to learn from this?
  • How do I glorify Him as I go through this trial?

Solution?
  • Give thanks in all circumstances
    • 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18:
    • “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything gave thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”
  • Remember the purpose of trials
    • James 1:2-4:
    • “Consider it pure joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
