Have you ever felt flustered, frustrated, irritable, discouraged, bitter, hurt, angry, impatient, and/or exasperated etc. because it is plain and clear God is giving you the same test He has already given you in the past maybe even the same test He has given you over and again?
Friend, first and foremost we MUST get rid of ALL sin in our THOUGHTS & FEELINGS, our words, and our actions. So all the yucky-ness you may be feeling and the thoughts accompanying that ick feeling need to be gotten rid of. We are to have pure hearts filled with humility, love, joy, peace, hope, thanksgiving, praise, etc.
Second, God can do ANYTHING He wants without having to justify or explain Himself no matter what we think and how we feel about it because HE IS LORD!
Third, and I am so led to encourage you with this. Any good teacher – and God is THE BEST TEACHER in the universe – will test his or her students again when they have failed the tests in the past, not done as well as they should have in past testing, need more growth, need to be strengthened, and/or need to be trained to teach and test students they will one day have themselves.
God has a purpose in all He does, so rest assured when He tests us again He has His reasons. And instead of being upset about it, we should humble ourselves, be thankful for God’s love and mercy and patience with us, and strive in God’s strength to go through our testing victoriously – with love, joy, peace, hope, and praise.
I have so much more growing to do! How about you?
We humans are imperfect in all we do. God is ALWAYS PERFECT in ALL that He does. Let us yield ourselves to the Lord in total surrender as He perfects His ways in us as He conforms us to Himself!
“The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.” Psalms 138:8 NKJV
“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” Philippians 1:6 NKJV
