Faith Tests

 

Let patience have
it’s perfect work

so I may be
complete

lacking nothing
for I know

I have You and You
have me.

**********

Lord, help me see trials the way You do, as opportunities to test my faith and grow in patience.

**********

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,”

“knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.”

“But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.”

James 1:2,3,4 NKJV

Murmur Healing

“And then He tested them and said, ‘If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight . . .I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians.  For I am the Lord who heals you.'”  Exodus  15:26

The people had traveled 3 days without finding water.  When they did find water, it was undrinkable.  They couldn’t seem to help but murmur against Moses.  God shows Moses a certain tree that once put in the water, will make it sweet to drink.  But, will it make the drinkers any sweeter?

O Lord, please heal my bitter heart murmurings and turn them into sweet offerings of trust and praise.  Here’s a simple poem . . .

Any Questions?

Testing will surely come
with the dawning of each day,
and how will I respond
will I throw up my hands and say,

“this is too hard for me”
shut down and turn away,
or let You be the answer
to my every need, and stay.
