Difficult times are tests to prove we love God regardless of the circumstances. It is easy to say we love God when everything is going well. However, God gives us tests to “humble us, tests us, know what is in our heart, and see whether we’ll keep His commandments or not.” (1) Jesus can “sympathize with our suffering. He has been tested like us.” (2) We prove our love to God in difficult times. When adversity comes, it’s our opportunity to show God we love Him.
