I don't know if more trials signify we are closer to God. I do know that we should be able to go through them more readily if we are closer to Him. I think He trusts us with more because we have come closer to Him. I know that Satan must try harder the closer we are to God.

yeah it's satan who'll ruin our faith and we're so blessed to have God in our lives to keep us strong ...

Hi butterfly! I trully agree with you friend. Not even looking as God's aspect. The enemy is running like a roaring lion looking for whom to devour. The enemy knows verywell that those who get closer to God are always save from being a slave of sin and condemnation. The enemy doesn't chase those who closer to God because He knows that they have been conqured already by His power. On the other hand, God put us through the season of trials so as to test the amount of trust we have in Him. Thanks and have a great day.

I completely agree with you that we are always tested by God in our adverse situations. God gives us tough tests to come out from those tests with flying colours. If God is there for ourselves, HE would also provide us solutions to our problems.

yeah and there's no problem that we can't handle if God allows it to happen...

Maybe so but I believe its God's way of testing your faith and courage how you will continuosly abide with him, like the trials of Job in the Bible. But getting close to Him even on hard days brings peace and encouragement.
