The Refreshment of the Spirit in Times of Trial | Sunday Message

In this episode, we continue in our series, Refresh, with Pastor Greg Laurie’s new message, “The Refreshment of the Spirit in Times of Trial.” The Christian life is not an easy one. Have you ever felt tired or worn out spiritually? Your faith seems to not be working, you struggle spiritually, and you feel exhausted.

Pastor Greg shows you where to find hope and encouragement from James 1!

Notes

“Times of refreshment come from the presence of the Lord.” —Acts 3:20

You will be spiritually refreshed when you read and study the Bible.

You will be spiritually refreshed when you think of others more than yourself.

Spiritual refreshment comes from times of spiritual testing.

Every Christian will face trials in life for their own good.

1. God allows trials in our lives so we will grow up spiritually.

Trials are like God’s gym where we are broken down to be built up.

Trials make you stronger not weaker.

2. Even when things look bleak, all things will ultimately work together for God’s glory and your good.

3. God’s ultimate purpose is that you might be conformed into the image of Jesus.

4. Suffering can bring glory to God.

A disability can become an ability when placed in the hands of God.

God will allow suffering and sickness to get our attention.

5. Suffering can be used by God to prepare us for a special task.
