Most of us remember our good ole school days, what our favorite subject was and our basketball and football teams. Some of us still sing the lyrics of our Alma Mata. I think if asked we would all agree the only thing we had problems with was test day. Many because they weren’t prepared; they didn’t take time to study, it was a pop quiz, or they studied the wrong thing. We don’t always realize it , but; in life we all go through a testing season.
A time when decisions must be made and consequences contemplated, because we exist in a fractured world our test may come in many different ways . We are tested by the actions of our children and family members, by co workers on our jobs, and by circumstances we have no control over. The challenges we face in life can be unpredictable because there are evil forces at work in our world. These forces come to steal, kill and destroy.
Their goal is to subjugate mankind by any means available, their satanic influence comes in the form of greed, selfishness, anger, and indifference to the needs of others. Unfortunately, we are powerless against these forces on our own, we must be fortified with the love and faith of Jesus the Christ to combat them. We are reminded we must put on the whole armor of God to come against these powerful forces.
No matter what the enemy brings, we must trust God for the victory over him and his evil agents. Once we recognize his presences, our testing season begins. We must seek the face of our Savior; stand on His word, prepare for battle through the leading of the Holy Spirit and stand in faith for the victory. We will all experience a testing season in our lives, Only with Jesus in our lives will we be prepared to face them . Preparation is the key to overcoming the enemy.
Fortification of your relationship with Jesus the Christ is necessary before your testing season comes, He is our ONLY hope against this enemy; He is our present help in time of trouble and He will never leave or forsake us. His desire is that none should perish but all should come to repentance that they might be saved and enter into His Fathers kingdom family. The question that remains to be answered is, are you prepared for your testing season?
