Message Action Plan

Tests of Faith

When we’re in a valley, it’s tough to see the light in the midst of the shadows. We often feel alone and even lost at times, but there’s comfort in knowing that God walks with us through the temporary darkness. In fact, there’s a divine purpose in us being in the valley, whether it’s to learn patience, grow in our spiritual journey, or experience God’s power. In this message at Saddleback Church, Lee Strobel joins Pastor Tom Holladay in talking about lessons in the valley and how trials can ultimately strengthen our faith.
