TEST 101

Isaiah 41:10-13 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes; I will help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. 

It seems that you are being tested at every turn. I see you hanging onto your hope wondering when is this pain going to end. Oh My child, I know you don’t understand what you are going through right now, but it’s only a test. So please don’t give up. For this test will strengthen your character.  I am preparing you for greater things coming your way that you aren’t ready to handle right now. You were not chosen by chance but rather with a purpose. For only I know the plans I have for you. My plans for your future are good and lovely.
Stop any leaning towards discouragement and self-pity.  Those are not of Me, and you don’t have time for that. Cast all your fears upon Me and you will not be disappointed. If you lose your hope, you also lose your vision, and the enemy will have won. The enemy knows that if he can cause you to fear, he can interrupt the plans I have for your good and your blessings. If he does this to you, others that are waiting to be blessed through you will be lost. You can make it; it’s only a test.
And don’t expect anyone else to encourage you. They are busy fighting battles of their own. It is time you rise up now and encourage yourself. That is what David had to do when the enemy was closing in on him. Your battle will be won when you enter your prayer closet to pray. There I will be waiting for you with divine instructions. There you will hear from Me, there you will be encouraged, there you will be strengthened, and there I will teach you to press your way. I want you to be strong, confident, and unbreakable.  Always trusting in Me.

Again, I say unto you never give up, it’s only a test, now rise up in faith!

My Prayer Confession,

Heavenly Father, I honor You and praise You this day with all that is within me.  Oh Lord I just lift up Your Holy Name!  Yes, Lord, thank You for reminding me it’s only a test.  I will press my way through the trials and tribulations as spoken to me so many times.  Oh Lord help me to know that You are guiding me through this valley and all I have to do is hold onto your hand.  It’s only a test!  Yes. Lord it’s only a test.  Thank You Jesus! 


About Shearon Hurst

I've been in the ministry for over 20 years. My writing ministry has been blessing people on the internet for over 10 years with words of encouragement which I send out to strengthen and comfort those in their walk with the Lord. I can easily speak on the subject of letting go, let God and get on with your life so you can move on a higher level. Having dealt with abuse, abandonment, rejection, and disappointment; I overcame the odds against me and pressed my way forward as the Spirit of the Lord led me into a more glorious path. I have a passion for the heart of women, and can minister to the wounded and broken hearted. I can speak to married women having been there and done that... to the single again women being there. My plethora of life experiences gives value to my desire to share and help others. My love for the Lord is what drives me to take a leap of faith and lean on God’s infinite wisdom, because I know with Christ nothing is impossible.
