Pass the test?


I've noticed a difference in how I live when I look at life differently. You live differently when you are consciously aware of something. Recently I have been looking at my life as a test, and considering what kind of grade I would really get.

There are so many opportunities and tests that God is waiting and watching to see how we will react to. And along with God is Satan, who is deciphering our every move and looking for ways to make us stumble. The devil does not want us to be aware of how we live. He wants us to continue living a mediocre life without realizing that we have a chance to live in a way that pleases God or a way that pleases him. Quite frankly, if you aren't making a serious, concerted effort to live for Christ, it is very likely you are living in a way that satisfies Satan. Our fleshly, human desires are sinful in the first place! So if we don't strive daily to be a living example of Jesus Christ, we revert back to our old sinful ways.

Satan wants nothing more than for us to be unaware! But girls, we have to pass this test. We have to examine our lives and look for all those times that we are challenged to do the right thing. It's definitely hard, but God tells us that every time we do the right thing and pass the test, He remembers and plans to reward us in Heaven!

James 1:12 (Contemporary English Version)
God will bless you, if you don't give up when your faith is being tested. He will reward you with a glorious life, just as He rewards everyone who loves Him.

Even though it is difficult to pass the test, God give us grace and helps us ace any test that is given to us.

1 Corinthians 10:13 (The Message)
No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; He'll never let you be pushed past your limit; He'll always be there to help you come through it.

All we have to remember is that God is there to help us. When we call on Him and ask Him to help us pass the test and be more aware of the tests in our life, He is faithful!

2 Thessalonians 3:3 (New International Version)
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.

In His Love,
