Genesis 22:1-6; Psalm 11:5
HAVE YOUR FAITH BEEN TRIED❓
The trial of our faith is the process by which our confidence in God is pruned and our hearts are freed from mundane inhibitions. It is the stuff by which are so stabilised and sufficiently equipped to be more productive in life. In fact, it is not in the habit of God to put valuable things into the hands of men whose heart He have not tried.
The trans-generational blessings that were bequeathed to Abraham was in response to his passing of that supreme test. Of course, God knew that he would pass the test, even through it was not going to be easy, because he does not test us beyond our abilities (1 Cor. 10:13). In fact, according to Apostle Peter, we are not to think of the trial of our faith as something strange (1Peter 4:12). It is God’s way of getting us more rooted in Him.
The trial of our faith can be like need to the wind that helps the traproot of a tree to go deeper into the soil or the wind that separates the chaff from the wheat. It is the fire purifies the golden parts of our character. The evidence that you have conquered greed is seen when you pass the test of giving; the proof that you are humble is when you pass the test of power and influence, and the sign that you have self-control is when you pass the pressures of lust, covetousness and temper tantrum. But the good news is that “When your faith succeeds in facing such trials, the result is the ability to endure… So that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:3-4)
The trial of our faith is the basis for God’s trust on us.
Lord, grant me the strength and wisdom to pass the various trials of my faith.
