Trials & Spiritual Growth

Trials are food for faith, George Mueller.

I came across this quote recently in my quiet time. I know God works all things together for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28), but, sometimes, trials can leave us wondering what good can possibly come from them. God has our best interest at heart, though, when He allows trials and the pain that comes with them in to our lives. It's how He grows us in our walk with His Son and draws us closer to Himself. This quote reminds me that the growing pains of our spiritual growth are for our own good.
