No testimony without a test.

It is always said that there is no testimony without a test.  God will always allow us to be tested but He knows along the way that He will provide us with the solution to the problem.  When our son left us, I was angry with God and I asked Him where the guardian angels were before the accident happened?  As usual teachers don’t talk during the tests otherwise the test could not be a test. It is after the test that the teacher talks.  Since God is our teacher He knew that we will perform well in this test. Holy Spirit of God had a testimony of us since He has given us the grace to overcome all this. After this revelation we were able to accept God’s will humbly. It’s not easy to pass the test; that is why we need, more than ever, to draw near to the Lord. As we do, we will come to know what it means to have the Lord draw near to us. As we seek Him ever more diligently, we will surely find Him. We will find the spiritual strength to survive even during the darkest hour of the night.

Testimony is not something that you have today and you keep always. Testimony is either going to grow and grow to the brightness of certainty, or it is going to diminish to nothingness, depending on what we do about it. Always remember the testimony that we recapture day by day is the thing that saves us from the pitfalls of the adversary. We need to stay close to the Lord every day if we are to survive the adversity that we all must face.

A testimony provides proper perspective, motivation and a solid foundation on which to build a life of purpose and personal growth. It is a constant source of confidence, a true and faithful companion during good times and bad times. A testimony provides us with a reason for hope and gladness. It helps us cultivate a spirit of optimism and happiness and enables us to rejoice in the beauties of nature. A testimony motivates us to choose the right at all times and in all circumstances. It motivates us to draw nearer to God, allowing Him to draw nearer to us.

If ever you are tempted to become discouraged or to lose faith, hold on a little longer. The Lord has blessed you with a testimony of the truth. You have felt His influence and witnessed His power. And if you continue to seek Him, He will continue to grant you sacred experiences. With these and other spiritual gifts, you will be able not only to change your own life for the better but also to bless your homes, communities, cities, states, and nations with your goodness.

It may be hard to see that at times, but hold on a little longer, for the bible says in 1st Corinthians2:9-10 “no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”

Comforting thought for the week

Our personal testimony is a protective shield, and like an iron rod it is guiding us safely through darkness and confusion. As we seek the Lord ever more diligently, we will surely find Him. Our eyes will be opened, and we will see Him open the windows of heaven and shower us with more of His light.
