Psalm 66:10 (GNT)
You have put us to the test, God; as silver is purified by fire so you have tested us.
Through our educational systems, testing isn’t only an indication of good memory but an indication of discipline, resilience, character, obedience and perseverance. Advancement, promotions, bonuses etc. are mostly determined by certain test criteria. God uses tests to build and prepare us for his work and for our growth in his kingdom. God doesn’t tempt you; he tests you because he wants to elevate you. Satan tempts you so you can fall to his level. All the Biblical greats had to go through the same process. You on the other hand, have a cheat sheet a.k.a Holy Ghost. Win!
Let me learn Oh Lord to welcome every test with joy and gladness as it holds the key to my elevation. And before I forget, thanks for the Holy spirit. My ultimate guide. In Jesus’ name I pray.
