Passing Life’s tests

..Establish the [uncompromisingly] righteous [those upright and in harmony with you]; for You, Who try the hearts and emotions and thinking powers, are a righteous God. –Psalm 7:9

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 when you don’t understand.Really trusting God sometimes means there will be unanswered questions, but when you push ahead, despite your doubts, He will build you up and make you strong.

From the book “Promises for our everyday life”
