Why the Fiery Trials?

by Chip Brogden


“I have heard of You by the
hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore
I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”
JOB 42:5,6

Hearing about God from others is not the same as seeing Him with your own eyes. In Job’s story we find an answer to the age-old question of why God allows the righteous to suffer. The answer is: there are things you need to know about God, and things you need to know about yourself, that you cannot know without going through a fiery trial.

The greatest lessons will not be learned while sitting in a classroom or reading a book. They will be learned in the dark nights, the deep valleys, and the raging seas of trial and tribulation.
