Testing! Testing! Testimony!!!

It has been a while since I have posted a blog. That's because the devil has been busy. It never fails though. That cotton-picken devil is a persistent one. The good thing about it, is that I am here to show you that he has No new tricks. That he will come for you in wools covering to destroy. You see, the devils goal is to remove the Christian of love, life and trust in Jesus as our life source and His plans for us.

I need for you to ask yourself one question though... Who sustains you? Who? Who sustains YOU? Your being, your blessings, your everyday issues and situations? Who? If a first thought comes to your mind, and it is not our loving Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, then I will certifiably tell you that you have a problem. You see, He (God that is) said in his word, "By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works" (Ephesians 2:8-9). This means that there will be Tests, Tests and more Tests. Gods everlasting grace and love will not be made easy by the devil. But don't fret, be grateful. You know that when you are receiving Tests upon Tests that you are headed in the right direction!

Know that all the while God is giving you a choice! A choice to endure trials & tribulations and TESTS!!! To not take the easy way out. His kingdom is worth going through TESTS. He will NOT leave you though! He too said in His word, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him." (Revelation 3:20).

I have said all of this to say that God loves you. But that if Jesus can endure such cruelty for us and our sins, then we can forgo a Test here and there!!! For every TESTimony entails that it will call for a TEST.

Be blessed and loved.
