Idea of Trials

Recommended Posts

Just wanting some feedback on this. What is the cause of these types of trials?
Generational curses? Sins?
How should we as believers respond?

Hmmm, interesting question you are asking JBS. What is the cause of these types of trials? Ultimately the enemy is behind them all HOWEVER, the lack of understanding of who Christ is and what His death, burial and resurrection means to us as Christians is the real problem. We were given authority over these things but what happens is we get into the mode of 'accepting' what the enemy dishes out to us because we don't understand. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6..."My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..." When we don't understand our authority and our position as Christians, we open the door for the enemy to lie to us and reak havoc in our lives.

When we have money problems we have to believe..."For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. (2 Corithians 8:9)

Generational curses..."Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Cor 5:7) Also...we were told that we would be cursed to the third and fourth generations in the old testament laws, (so here is another scripture..."Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”)," (Galatians 3:13)

For Sins..."Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." (Romans 6:11-14)

How should we respond? By studying the word of God and renewing our minds to what Jesus has purchased for us. We need to stand our ground and not be pushed around by the enemy and allowing him to make us think we have to settle for things we've been redeemed from. Don't tolerate it...stand in his face and tell him to go. Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (James 4:7) Submitting to God is the same as submitting to His Word because he and His word are one.

I hope this helps!!!

Connie...you and I have ALWAYS been on the same page regarding our rights in the kingdom of God. I SO love that about you.

JBS...I forgot to add a scripture for health..."who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed." (1 Peter 2:24)

Sorry about that...I just noticed that I forgot to include that in my response to you.
