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?
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.
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
