There is no way to know who we really are
until we’ve been tested.
The more tests we have the better we see inside
God’s gauges are used to test our quality
His measurements of our inner properties are precise
I’m humored by someone taking my temp before I enter,
I never ran a temp when I had covid-19
I never ran a temp when I got double pneumonia
I was coughing and sneezing before corona & pneumonia
I’m still coughing and sneezing long after it was cured
God’s standards on testing our faith are beyond comparison.
When God tests our faith He may bluntly have us face
the blank side of the wall without any clue on what’s
waiting for us on the other side.
His ways of putting our faith into the test is not
within the limited boundaries of our comprehension.
In our measurements and limited understanding,
God’s sovereign ways may seem to be unreasonable
God’s tests perhaps at times feel unjustifiable.
He’s the God of the universe,
He’s the Creator of heaven and earth,
He’s the King of kings and Lord of Lords.
His ways are not our ways.
Who are we to question His ways?
I question these tests question for entering building
I question that a piece of cloth is securing my health
Or securing anyone else’s health
If God wants us to catch a disease we’re going to get it
If God delivers from getting a disease we’ll never get it
I’m not saying we should be or act caviler about it
Fear is the opposite of faith.
We can cringe over things and exercise absurd caution
We all face different levels of intensity
We all come into God’s lab of faith testing
Yours maybe different from mine
Ours might be different from that of others.
If 99 percent of the population don’t get a certain
Virus or bacterial infection it doesn’t mean those
99 % won’t get something or other that God allows
Inoculations don’t secure us from God allowing Satan
to conjure up in His mad scientists lab another rubicon
There are worse plagues that could wipe us out yet to come
Each test of faith is a chance to show our trust,
Each test is an opportunity to obey and love God.
When God tests our faith, it‘s an opportunity
for us to deepen our intimacy with Jesus
Cain’s test was a threshold where sin crouched at his door
The result of his test showed what was inside of him
He was terminal with a disease filled murderous inside
He got the test results and he ignored them
He bludgeoned his brother to a bloody dead pulp
There is a lot of testing being administer today
How are we testing out?
What are we seeing inside ourselves?
God is a master at precise questions and tests
Are we learning what’s inside of us through it?
The same sun that melts the ice hardens the clay
Are we getting sweeter through our tests or are we fomenting in sour gall?
Are we deepening in are wailing and gnashing of teeth?
Or are we softening in our heart and bursting with joy as we
feel Jesus is closer and closer and at home in every room in our heart?
