Are You Running Into Problems?

We can rejoice when we run into problems and trials? Yes, that is exactly what the Bible tells us. But how is that even possible? It’s only possible when we begin to realize that adversity is part of the growing process. You cannot build muscle without resistance. Failure is not the opposite of success-it is part of success. We must learn how to change our perspective.
Here is what we learn from this scripture. Problems and trials help us develop endurance. Endurance develops strength of character. Character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And that kind of hope will never disappoint! 
So if you are going through some difficult things, just remember that you are being developed and strengthened every minute. You may start with problems but you end by not being disappointed. You will go through what you are going through!
