FROM THE FATHER’S HEART
God has marked out a plan of persistent promotion for you. He has a package of increasing glory for His children.
18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
7 Though your beginning was small, Yet your latter end would increase abundantly.
But God has a principle – it is the principle of promotion. No one gets lifted or promoted without passing a test; it is a law of the justice of God.
When it is time for you to go to another level in God, any new level of increase – financial, marital, spiritual and so on. It will be preceded by tests.
God allows tests to come our way because it is promotion time!
See Abraham in Genesis 22:1
1 Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”
God allowed a test because it was time to finalize the covenant with Abraham.
When trials come your way, when you are tempted as it were or when tests come, it is not because God hates you.
In fact, it is not so that you can stumble, but so that you can rise and change to a higher dimension of glory.
Tests are our time signal that promotion is around the corner! All you need to do is to prepare to pass the test.
Students don’t conclude that the school is an oppressor because of examinations, but they rather read, pass and move on to the next level.
When tests, trials, and temptations come, let the stuff of faith come out of your spirit. Face them, go through and emerge a winner!
Till next week, go and win with Jesus.
