Tests & Trials for the Believer- From God or Satan?

According to the Bible, God does NOT bring these things into a believer’s life:

James 1:13- Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

God has no evil in him.  So he cannot, by his very nature, cause sickness, poverty, strife, etc. in anyone’s life.

Let it be known that tests and trials come to steal God’s word away from the believer.

Mark 4:15- … Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Without the Word of God you are destined to fail and go back into sin. When a storm comes, don’t think it is from God. Reject and rebuke it like Jesus did:

Mark 4:39- And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.

Now that you have the tools to discern the difference between God’s will and Satan’s works, you can be confident that troubles should have NO place in your life!
