I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having a tough time lately. The last month has brought on things that have caused me plenty of stress and trouble and so I have been really needing love, support and encouragement from God and my friends.
Well this morning, I looked at Joyce Meyer’s Facebook page and I found this amazing devotional that was incredibly on time. I praise God that I clicked on it and stopped and read it. It’s very quick & easy to read so I recommend that you do so.
(Joyce Meyer is a well known Bible teacher who travels all across the world teaching people about God’s love and will for their lives)
Here’s the devotional in all of it’s wisdom-take a peek.
You Can Pass the Test…
Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well developed, not deficient in any way. —James 1:2-4 The Message
When life is filled with tests and trials, you sometimes feel like throwing in the towel. You are tempted to think God doesn’t know where you are and what you’re going through . . . or that He doesn’t care. But God permits tests in your life so He can bless you. And if you are faithful, you will see good results.
If you want to enjoy your Christian life and be used by God to help others, you must maintain a godly attitude during the time of testing. So cooperate with God and display an attitude of faith, and you will pass the test with flying colors!(Click to visit her site)
I hope this encouraged you, if it did-be sure to invite your friends to read it by sharing it on your Facebook wall or tweet it…it really helped me today and gave me the hope I needed to keep going.
I hope it does the same for you.
