Have you ever been in a really dark place? Have you ever wondered if God really existed? Have you ever blamed God for stuff just not working out? Have you ever faced such a big mountain that you did not know how you was going to get passed it? Being a Christian as we saw last week, although is the best thing the world has the promise of hardship (1 Peter 1, 4). Peter Tells us not to be surprised when the trial comes. Why because trial produce faith and faith produces dependance and dependance produces perseverance perseverance that will enable you to move mountain. (2 Peter 1v6).

And when he came to the place, he said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation. (Luke 22v40).
