I wasn't saying that we won't have problems (ie.trials). I am saying that God wants us to let him take care of it. God wants us to lift the burdens off our back and let him handle it. The main reason we have these trials is because we try to do things on our own and we screw up. I am not saying that Christians won't have problems ever again. I'm saying God is always there and willing to help bail you out of those problems. Now my question to you is, how would it strengthen us to not get help while suffering? How is that going to glorify God if God doesn't help us? No offence, but that just doesn't make since.
Don't get me wrong, I believe in scripture. I just don't like to get in debates because sometimes people get stuck in their original belief and there heart gets hardend to anything different if you try to prove them wrong or push your belief on them. But, here is some scripture. I'm holding you to your word.
Matt 7 "7": Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
"8": For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Matt 10 "7": And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
"8": Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Matt 21 "19": And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
"20": And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
"21": Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
"22": And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
John Ch 16 "23": ... Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
"24": Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Luke Ch11 "9": And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
"10": For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
"11": If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
Mark Ch 11 "23": For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
"24": Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
