Wilderness experiences and challenging times of testing are a part of every Christian’s life and if it has not shown up in your life yet, just keep living. Storms of testing times are inevitable and for a divine purpose, so I encourage you to hold on.
Tests and trials are necessary for us to mature, grow, and learn how to trust God; they come to test and strengthen our faith. When we hold on in the storm and persevere through testing times, it produces patience and shows us who God is and what we can do through His strength, grace and mercy.
