Passing Life’s Tests

Today’s Scripture
Psalms 7:9
“O let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end, but establish thou the righteous: For the righteous God trieth the minds and hearts.”

Today’s Word

Life is filled with challenges that test our determination and our faith in God. Whether we’re faced with the impending threat of evil or with everyday hassles, the quality of our character is sure to be tested on a regular basis.
It would be a great mistake to overlook the fact that God tests our hearts, our emotions and our minds. What does it mean to test something? It means to put pressure on it to see if it will do what it says it will do. Will it hold up under stress? Can it perform at the level its maker says it can? Is it genuine when measured against a true standard of quality?
God does the same with us.
Are you being tested today? The key is to keep trusting God, even if you don’t understand. There is no such thing as trusting God without unanswered questions, but when you push ahead, despite your doubts, He will build you up and make you strong.

Today’s Prayer
Lord, when tested, I want to be ready, holding up under pressure, following You no matter what. Show me daily how to put my trust in You, even when I struggle with unanswered questions. In Jesus name. Amen.
