I don't know about you, but I was not a fan of pop quizzes in school. They were unexpected, usually tricky, and I wasn't prepared for them.
The same holds true for life as an adult. It seems all of us have faced unexpected tests and trials, especially during the past several months.
There have been things we could have never planned if we had tried. BUT GOD. He is ALWAYS faithful. He never leaves us alone. Most importantly, nothing that happens to us is ever a surprise to Him.
God has a divine purpose for each one of us uniquely designed for us. A purpose that only you and I can fulfill. So I encourage you to embrace the testing that take place in life.
Keep your eyes on Christ.
Ask God what He wants to teach or develop in you during this time of painful and challenging testing. He will answer your cries in His perfect timing. He will direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Are you ready and willing to pass your faith tests? God will supply EVERYTHING YOU NEED to pass your tests of faith with flying colors! TRUST HIM.
The Furnace of Affliction
The Bible makes no mention of Abram calling friends for their thoughts on what God instructed him to do. He did not check his horoscope in the paper while drinking his morning coffee. He just went. Abraham passed this test with flying colors.
