Test me, O Lord... Examine my heart and mind. Psalm 26:2 NIV
There are two kinds of tests we go thought:

1. The Offence Test

2. The Warfare Test

Let’s examine the Test we all will go through:

Will you pass the test?

Offence Test

Jesus said, "Offences will come" (Luke 17:1). So be ready! Those who lead always take the worst of the flack. The front line is no place for the weak-willed or the weak-kneed.


  1. What are you going to do when offences come?
  2. Get mad and get nowhere?
  3. Get into trouble? Or
  4. Get over your issues by practicing forgiveness
  5. "If you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins" (Mk 11:25 NIV).
    Warfare Test

This test is for those who claim to be strong in faith, but prove to be weak in fight. "When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, `If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt'" (Ex 13:17 NIV). Now, you haven't been called to be insensitive and abrasive, but if your destiny is worth pursuing – it's worth fighting for! So, toughen up!
It's a battlefield, not a bed of roses. You must engage the enemy each day using each spiritual weapon at your disposal. If you don't he'll steal every God-given blessing you've got, including your identity, your testimony, your integrity, your family, your calling, and your future. This test demonstrates your ability to continue in your vision even while you're experiencing disappointment and opposition.

My sisters and brothers remember the level of attack is the best indicator as to the level of blessing that waits for you beyond the attack!

1. How has mankind fared with the test they are in —and what about you?

2. Are you willing to surrender a portion of your time to build the kind of relationship God wants to enjoy with you?

Grace and Peace

We do understand the power in forgiving, one of our very test was when our children were taken away for 7yrs. because family didn't understand the power of conversion, being born again and follwers of Christ so they thougth we had lost our minds as long as we were on drugs and running the streets that was normal to them...but to have Christ was crazy do I need to say more but God showed us how to forgive in His word and so we learned to forgive from the judge in the court room to the last family who stood against us, some who are saved now. Thank you for the work you do to bring Him glory.

Personally I do not know you, Thank God for the Spirit thatdwells within you, For just knowing that God is omnipresent shall suffice. I am learning and have learned that Forgiveness is the key too passing alot of these tests. If we continue to be offended and dwell on it, it makes life somewhat tasteless.

Your brother in Christ,
Minister Adrian Lamar West Sr.
p.s. Continue to give all that you have, and surely God shall increase you!!
