Battle Tested

Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time. – Daniel 11:33-35 

When we go through hard times, quality is built into our character. We are battle tested for what life brings our way and are ready to do what is needed. Even the best among us stumble at times. We don’t live in a perfect world and we all fall under the tremendous stresses and strains that this world produces. This video explains that there is a King of kings we should worship and follow: We All Fall Down – Chris Tomlin.

But He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold. – Job 23:10


About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

  1. You gave me scriptural answers to the cry of my heart last night. When we have walked with strength and maturity, it is so difficult to find a trial that comes from within. This blessed reassurance keeps me centered in thanking Him for this very uncomfortable time in my life. God is so good, all the time.
