God’s desire is for us to become like Him.
He wants His glory to be manifested through us. When you walk into a situation, He wants His glory to to walk into that situation. If we are going to have people come to the Lord, they don’t need to see a beat-down, discouraged Christian. They need to see a Christian who believes and trusts in the Lord, a Christian who allows the Lord to work through their life.
It’s Christ in you the hope of glory, the hope of glory for that lost soul.
Christ may not come to someone in a burning bush. He may decide to come to them through you. But if there’s no glory in your life, then how can you reach them?
We go from glory to glory, from one level to the next. With this test you’ve been given, God is preparing to promote you.
Two things will get you promoted: Staying faithful to God, and passing the tests you’re given.
What are you going to do with this test?
God’s not mad at you. He’s getting ready to promote you, and to do that He’s turned up the heat, not to burn you, but to purify you. He wants to look at you and see His image.
If you don’t pass a certain test, you will have to take it over and over again until you do. Want to know how to pass the test? Keep your heart right before God, stay faithful to Him, keep walking with Him and trusting Him.
And when you pass that test. God shall restore you with a double blessing. Don’t quit, don’t let the test slow you down. The test will leave you with a testimony when you pass.
God will turn a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a trophy, an attack into victory, sorrow into joy, weeping into laughter, pain into peace, and hurt into healing.
At the end of the storm, He’s going to reveal a new glory in your life. Your challenge is to last, to stand until God moves. And when you come out of this test, you should celebrate!
You’ve passed! This test is over!
