Series 2 - Lesson 8 - Annotation 13
What is meant by the "trial of ... faith"? — I Peter 1:7 (A.V.).
13. Through faith we intuitively discern the essence of the truths that we seek, but this discernment takes place before we are able to bring it into the fullness of expression. Faith encourages us to make trial or to prove what we have seen intuitively as a possibility. In time we see the reason for the faith that is in us, having proved what we foresaw. We now have a better understanding of the law and conditions.
