IT’S ONLY A TEST

FROM DEVOTIONAL “WHERE PEACEFUL WATERS FLOW”

It seems as though you are tested at every turn. I see you hanging onto hope wondering when is this pain going to end. Oh My child, I know you do not understand what you are going through right now, but it is only a test. Please do not give up. This test will strengthen you, and build character. I am preparing you for greater things coming your way, things that you are not ready to handle right now. You were not chosen by chance, but rather with a purpose. I know the plans I have for you, and My plans for your future are good.
 
Stop leaning on discouragement and self-pity, they are not of Me. You do not have time for that. Cast all your fears upon Me, I will not disappoint you. Do not give up. If you lose hope, you will lose your vision, and the enemy will win. The enemy knows if he can cast a spirit of fear upon you, he can hinder the plans I have for you. If you allow this to happen, others who are waiting to be blessed through you will be lost. My child, you can make it; it is only a test.
 
During this test, do not expect others to keep you encouraged. They are busy fighting battles of their own. It is time you rise up and encourage yourself. That is what David had to do when the enemy attacked him. Your battle will be won when you enter your prayer closet and pray. In our secret place, I will be waiting for you with divine instructions. It is there you will hear from Me; and will be strengthened. It is there I will teach you how to press your way to victory. 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!

  Scriptures to Meditate on:

1Sa 30:6  And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. 

Isa. 41:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 

1Pe. 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise, honour, and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

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.
