Many times in this life, we will go through a variety of trials which will test our faith. I haven’t met one person as of yet, who takes joy in going through a trial or a test. One thing that I have learned though, is that even through the trials and the tests of this life, God will give you the strength to endure. Even though the load may seem hard to bear; just know that your victory will come when you accept the fact that you do not have to fight the battle…..Jesus will fight for you! You must learn how to truly lean and depend on God to help you through it, and use each trial that He has helped you through as strength to help you on to the next one. Receiving God’s all-knowing wisdom and guidance, will actually guide you to this next level in Him.
I have talked to more people in the last several weeks who are all looking at acquiring new opportunities, new seasons, and new successes. But one thing seems to be a common denominator in each of us; we have all either experienced or are experiencing a test of our FAITH! Yes, I said it…..A TEST. See, when you are on your way to another level, you must first understand that you will have to go through something to gain something! God will always give you who and what you need to succeed, but the challenge for us comes in tapping into what God has already given us. As you are on your way up, don’t forget to stop and be thankful for what you already have. Don’t allow the enemy to distract you and tell you that you can’t make it through this testl, because you can. Although the journey may seem impossible, remember that the Book of Matthew reminds us that with God, ALL things are possible! Even through it all, you must first believe! Seek Him, and He will truly direct your path.
