In your walk with God, there comes a time when a test to determine whether or not you love God will be performed.
Every child of God goes through a test.
The ultimate test is used to make a judgment about whether someone is acceptable to God.
God's test of whether or not you are acceptable to Him is His litmus test.
Often times the test proves to be a difficult situation or task that shows if someone is good enough to show His redemptive power in the midst of his/her challenges.
His tests, often times, come to try or prove if you are a success candidate for service, Judg 7:5, for leadership, 1 Sam 15:1-11 etc..,
People whom God tested and passed, came out strong. They welcome tests and are sure they will come out clean, Job 23:10.
These are various single indicators of God's test that prompts Him to a decision.
A test of attitudes/characters, patience, endurance of potential vessels
that will prove challenging but will ultimately and decisively reveal where and whether or not they stand.
The higher you wish to go in the Lord, the more trials, temptation, good and bad fights that will come your way.
When God tests you or you are tempted, He makes grace available and a way of escape open to you, 2 Cor 12:9, 1 Cor 10, 13.
He does not leave you alone in the midst of His tests. He is there with you, Is 43:2. His tests are not to keep you away but to make you run to Him for help, Ps 46:1, Prov 10:18.
In your stormy, rainy days, stay strong.
It is a test, do not give up, it will pass away!
Strong faith is often exercised with strong trials.
*Call to Word action.*
Job 1:22 *In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
God's test is a relationship assessment to measure His relationship satisfaction with you.
Lord, when You choose to test me, please let me not be found wanting, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
