Sunday Mar 01, 2015 – 1 Peter 4:12 – Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.
James 1:2-3 – Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Tests never make sense but they reveal submission and obedience. The longer you wait to obey, the harder the test is. When a test gets crazy, God wants you to keep your eyes on Him. Trust that God will always provide. God can require anything from you, when you talk about when you are going to be loyal to God and when you are not. There is no telling what God may require. –Dwayne Terry
