If you follow the news, there is not a bright picture and it is sometimes very discouraging. We hear talk about a Prosperity Gospel where if you come to Jesus, there will be no problems, or physical problems but you will be healthy, wealthy and problem free. Jesus said in John 16:33 “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have Overcome the world..” Read the book of Job in the Old Testament and see how he did in many testings and trials. God takes the Christian through hard times to find out what is in their heart. That is, if you really love God or not. Christians are like soldiers going out to world but to be a strong Christian, you must be tested. James 1:12 “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life…” Vs. 13“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:..” Vs. 14 “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed” Vs. 15 “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death” testing can be of God when you are taken through a time when God will find out if you really love Him. Testing can be when temptations come to be drawn away from God and His word. Job was tested but read Job 42 and see how God blessed him. King David was tested with being idle and looking at a woman and then having a relationship with her. Both were tested but King David allowed Satan to draw him away from what was right.Man needs to turn from his sin and accept the Lord Jesus as personal Savior. Man can Live right and do right if he will have God’s spirit inside him and depend on the strength Of God. Turn today to the Lord Jesus and depend on His word for Eternal Life.
