Trials, Temptations and Tribulations

1. Trials and tests are to be expected:

Psa.34:19 - Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all
Acts 14:22 - We must through much tribulation enter the Kingdom
1Cor.10:13a - No temptation taken you but such as is common to man
1Thes.3:3 - No man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto
Heb.12:7 - What son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
1Pet.4:12 - Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try (test) you
1Pet.4:17 - Judgment must begin at the house of us
1Pet.5:9 - Knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren
(See also Psa.26:2; 139:23,24.)

2. Trials often result when things don't go our way:

Jam.4:2 - Ye lust, and have not...desire to have, and cannot obtain

A. Often God will grant your heart's desire:

Psa.37:4 - Delight thyself in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart
Psa.84:11 - No good thing will He withhold from them (the upright) Psa.145:19a He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him
Pro.10:24b - The desire of the righteous shall be granted
(See also Psa.21:2; 145:16.)

B. But sometimes He withholds it because it's not His time:

Eccl.3:1-8 - There is...a time to every purpose under the heaven
(See also Psa.37:34; Eccl.8:5,6.)

C. Or because it would choke out your fruitfulness:

Mk.4:7,19 - The lusts of other things entering in, choke the Word, and it becometh unfruitful (See Mat.13:22; Lk.8:14.)

D. Or seriously stumble or offend others:

1Thes.5:22 - Abstain [even] from all appearance of evil
Rom.14:14-16, 21 - Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died (See also 1Cor.8:8-13)

E. Or bring reproach on the Lord's work or ministry:

2Sam.12:14 - By this deed [murdering Uriah] thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme
2Cor.6:3 - Giving no offence...that the ministry be not blamed
(See also 2Pet.2:2)

F. Or because of unrepented sin in your heart:

Jer.5:25 - Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you
(See also Psa.66:18; Isa.59:1,2.)

G. Or because you're asking with the wrong motives:

Jam.4:2,3 - Ye ask and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts

H. It's not always good to get the desire of your heart:

Psa.73:3,7,16-22 - I was envious at...prosperity...they have more than heart could wish...then understood I their end
1Tim.6:9,10 - They that will(desire to) be rich fall into temptation...and many hurtful lusts...erred from the faith

I. You may miss something better God had planned for you:

Psa.81:10-13,16 - He would have fed them the finest of wheat...honey

J. Nonetheless, we have trials when we can't have something:

1Sam.1:6b-8, 10 - The Lord had shut up her womb...therefore she wept... heart grieved...bitterness of soul

(See 1Sam.8:4-22; 12:1,13,16-19 - re: asking for a king)

L. What you give up for the Lord, He will often return:

Gen.22:1-12 - [God commands Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, then stops him and lets him keep Isaac] (See also Heb.11:17-19)

James & Tess Arendt

My name is James Arendt. I was raised in the Hegewisch neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois, served in the USAF from 1970 to 1974, and became a full-time missionary for Christ living 40 years in Japan, 3.5 years in Russia, and a few months in other countries such as Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, South Korea, Taiwan and mainland China where I also served the King of Kings, Jesus, as an Ambassador for His Kingdom. My full bio.

If you like this website, you can show your appreciation by sending me a gift toward my support. My wife Tess and I moved from the island of Guam USA in June 2023 to the city of Allen in the province of Northern Samar, one of the poorer provinces in the Philippines. My only work is maintaining my websites, Deep Truths, and James Japan which costs me $300 per year now. And Tess is ministering to the local people giving them regular Bible Studies in three groups, children, teenagers and adults.

Photos of Tess's Bible study.

You may like my James Japan site as well because it covers subjects that are not covered in Deep Truths such as things like the Climate Change Hoax and the COVID-19 death-jabs.
