Living godly lives does not excuse us from undergoing hardships and tribulations. This is something all believers must understand. Just because we encounter adversity does not mean we sinned or did anything wrong. The faith we need to push through a tough situation is not our faith, but God’s faith. His faith is much better than ours. We find real rest in the midst of turmoil when we stop working hard to believe that we are righteous, redeemed, delivered, and healed, and simply believe it because Jesus believes it. This removes all pressure from selfeffort, and gives us the highest kind of faith there is.
