1 Peter 4: 12 & 19
12. Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you….?
19. Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.
-Many have complained at the number of harsh and rather hostile situations they are facing, their frequency and increasing intensity. WHY, WHAT HAPPENED, WHAT (WRONG) HAVE I DONE? etc.
– One principle holds throughout time and space: With every TEST there is either PASS or FAIL. With every pass comes a PROMOTION!
-You Sir/Mam are due for a promotion, and yes in the very area of your testing; CAREER, SPIRITUAL, FAMILY, FUTURE, FINANCES, etc.
– One thing though, DON’T FAIL THE TEST!
-Take courage from verse 19 quoted above: entrust your soul/ yourself/ your situation to a faithful Creator and do what is RIGHT!
-Your temporal set back and hardship cannot compare to the glory that lies ahead.
PRAYER: Lord help me not to FAIL THE TEST You have allowed me to face ahead of my blessing. I trust You more than me…..I trust ONLY YOU! Amen.
Have a great Thursday!
