When Faith Is Tested

Read: Genesis 22: 1-14

This is an incredible story. What a test of faith this is!

We all go through times when our faith is tested. Some of us, though, need to take the test over and over. God often allows things to happen in our lives to test our faith in Him. But we can be assured that He will not test or try us beyond what we can handle – though at times it can seem overwhelming.

When going through these times we still need to lean on God – in fact, we need to lean on Him more. God is not a mean God. He doesn’t let us go through times of testing just to be entertained. Not at all. He is our loving Father. He knows that going through these times builds our faith, it builds our character, and we are more able to help those that are going through the same things.

It’s much like us as parents. Though we love our kids, we need to allow them to go through the upsets and disappointments in life. Though we’d like to, we can’t take their pain away. We also need to let them suffer the consequences of wrong choices. It’s so hard to step back, but it’s needful so they will learn and grow. I see that with God our Father. He loves us so much, and knows what’s best for us. And He will never, never give up on us.

If you are going through a time of testing – remember God loves you, and He will walk with you. And He will bring you back into a time of blessing (as the rest of this chapter reveals). Remember the ‘Foot-prints’ poem. If it gets too tough – God will carry you!

-M.S.Lowndes

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

1 Corinthians 10 : 13

Lord I pray for your strength
When I am faced with testing
Help me to come through it Lord
Into a time of blessing

-M.S.Lowndes



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
