Why We Have Difficulties and Temptations

Read the Bible in a year by reading Judges 3-5 today.
Life is hard. Why is that? Does God allow our difficulties? Listen to the writer of the Book of Judges explain why God left some of the Canaanites in the land, “And they were left, that He might test Israel by them, to know whether they would obey the commandments of the LORD, which He had commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses” (Judges 3:4). God wanted to see whether Israel would continue to obey Him even when they had a hard life and when temptations were before them.
Look at your troubles in a whole new light. They are opportunities to show God that you are going to obey Him regardless of what the day throws at you.
