In each of our lives we face many tests and challenges. Whether you are fully prepared or not, these tests and challenges will occur. Whether you believe me or not, does not hinder the challenges from coming. Just as it is in school, so it is in life. After the teacher has taught you from the lesson plans, the tests will always follow. None of us should be surprised when it is our turn to take the test. No one is exempt. No one can be excused. From the “holiest” to the “unrighteous,” we all will be tested, tempted and challenged.
I know each day presents different challenges. Someone is always attempting to destroy you. Negativity has attempted to surround you. Through all you are currently experiencing, God has never left you alone (Hebrews 13:5). When times become stressful in your life, you must learn to minister to yourself. God has prepared you for this. Whatever it may be, the Lord has provided each of us with a cheat sheet (the Holy Bible). He has already given you the answers to the tests. Child of God, do you not realize this test you are going through is an open book exam? I Believe You Can Pass THIS Test! The Bible declares in 2 Corinthians 1:20 – For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. He (God) promised us peace in our storm (Philippians 4:7). He promised to supply all of our needs (Philippians 4:19). He promised to heal our body (Isaiah 53:5).
What has God promised you? Do you remember the promise? Do you still believe in the promise? Are you sure? When times become overbearing, you must hold-fast to the promise(s) of God. If everything and everyone fails you, never let go of God’s promise to you. If God does not fulfill what He promised, He is made a liar. Since we know God cannot lie, then we should also know His promises SHALL COME TO PASS! Stand firmly on His Word. The Bible declares in Romans 4:20-21 – He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; 21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
Thought to Remember: There are no promises given by God that have not come to pass!
