Your mess becomes your message. Your test is tailormade for you and only you can pass it. The test will bring promotion and allows you to level up. God listens when you speak and if you say the wrong things and look at the wrong things repeatedly, God will need to send you a test. If you don’t pass the test you will need to write it again.
You need to keep pressing in by faith and keep close to God. James 1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. Your focus should not be on the test but the increase after passing the test, much like an expecting mother pushes through labor pains to receive the gift of life for her child. God wants to know if you are committed to Him.
If you take your focus off God he will set you up for exams, because he needs you free from the thing that is supposed to be dead. If Jesus’ focus was on people. You need to be able to hear God’s voice during the test. He would never have gone to the cross. When you rush and keep your mind busy you can’t get into that quiet place, where the Holy Spirit can speak to you. The tests are there for God to know where He stands with you. If you let go and let God, God takes the person away and He deals with the person. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” In today’s sermon, Pastor Jaco explains the reason for spiritual tests
