My Faith is ALWAYS Tested
I believe that God does this because I am usually battling with my faith. It seemed so natural to believe that the tooth fairy would place money under my pillow when I lost a tooth. Or knowing that Santa would bring me gifts for Christmas as long as I was a good little girl all year. Yet, when it comes to believing and having faith in the promise that God has on my life, I struggle.
So The Promise Is Received By Faith.
For the past month I have been struggling with a tough decision to make. Prayer has been my source and seeking His word so that I have confirmation that I am making the right decision. Everything would be going smoothly, filled with confidence, until that moment of doubt takes a stand and my faith slowly declines.
I always wonder why I have these thoughts that lead me to thinking it just won't work out. But, I remember that it's a test from God and it's up to me to ace it. Just like in school, we are taught a lesson and ever so often the teacher gives us a test/quiz to confirm whether we've been paying attention the entire time leading up to the test itself. I believe it works just the same with faith and with God.
We have His Word to study if we just put our heart, mind and soul into it. We build our love and faith in Him and He tests us to see if we're truly absorbing what He has been filling us up with. Granted, sometimes in school we failed that test and, depending on the test and your teacher, we were able to take it again. It might not have been easy, but we learn where we messed up and try to improve. A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skilled Sailor.
We can rejoice too, when we run into problems and trials,
for we know that they help us develop endurance.
