One of the greatest misconceptions we can have about faith, is if we have enough of it, we can pray and or believe our way out of anything.
While faith does help one to overcome, and is the very foundation of our salvation, it is not a magic potion for our own personal gain. When we falsely apply faith, we view trials as a source of mockery and shame, completely disregarding the words of the disciple James that are woven into the Scriptures. Pride wears a very gross disguise and even causes one to despise the very holy work the trials are sent to accomplish. The overcoming is not a bypassing of testing itself, the overcoming is in meeting with and surrending to the Overcomer…
Mature faith yields – not unto his own will or desire, though unto the Lord’s. Mature faith does not manipulate the Lord, it dies for the Lord!
“James, a bond-servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, To the twelve [Hebrew] tribes [scattered abroad among the Gentiles] in the dispersion: Greetings (rejoice)! Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing.” James 1:1-4 AMP
“[You should] be exceedingly glad on this account, though now for a little while you may be distressed by trials and suffer temptations, So that [the genuineness] of your faith may be tested, [your faith] which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire. [This proving of your faith is intended] to redound to [your] praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:6-7 AMPC
