Thank you for that test.
When have you ever used that phrase? You really don’t need me telling you this, but God is a God who tests His people ALL THE TIME.
I’ll keep it short and sweet with a quote from Ed Welch about God’s testing ways. “Don’t think final exams and test anxiety. Think of tests as a way to expose traitors during wartime. We are the potential traitors and don’t even know it. God tests us because we are so oblivious to the mixed allegiances in our hearts. The purpose of the test is to help us see our hearts and if they are found traitorous, we can turn back to God. God is not playing mind games with us; he is forging a relationship.”
Mmmm- let that sweet truth marinate a bit.
