TITLE: TESTS BRING TESTIMONIES: TRIALS BRING TRIUMPH

KEY VERSE: RUTH 1: 18
When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her”
Jesus also tested the Syrophoenician woman. She had cried after Him for her daughter that was grievously vexed with the devil but Jesus kept quiet, then said I cannot take the food that belongs to children and give them to dogs. The woman said, yet the dogs eat from the crumbs that fall from the children’s table. She passed the test. Jesus said, “Woman, great is your faith.” Was He really angry with her? Did Jesus really despise her? Did Jesus mean that she should not get her blessing? Just to try her faith.
Why is it that a little thing happened to you in the Campground and you swore never to attend Holiness Conference again? Is that not the Lord trying you? Do you think God takes to heaven people He has not tested? If you are not tested, you will do harm to this place. If you come in just as you are, without change in your life, you would do evil to this place. God allowed the devil to try you and now you are swearing never to come again! It is for your harm.
If you take that wrong decision, it is for your harm and destruction, because God does not take to heaven a person that He has not tested. A woman He has not tried to know what is in her heart. He tries to know what is in your heart, what you will say and what you will do. If you take a good decision, you are a victorious woman that despises trials and overcome.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Be ready to overcome difficulties.
SONG FOR THE DAY: I must go with Jesus everywhere, no matter the roughness…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Daniel 7-8; 1 John 5
