Faith must be tested // 01-10-19

“Even gold, which can be destroyed, is tested by fire; and so your faith, which is much more precious than gold, must also be tested, so that it may endure. Then you will receive praise and glory and honour on the Day when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭GNT‬‬

MOT stands for Ministry of transport; a car has to have an annual MOT test to show it is fit for the road and able to transport you to where you need to go! In the same way my faith also needs to have an MOT to show it is fit for the journey and able to get me to my God-given destination! The struggles I go through, the stretches, often show up where I need some work done. The intention of the test is not to take me off the road but to ensure I am good for the long haul! Lord, help me to see my struggles for the tests that they are so that my faith and resilience can grow and move me to where You need me to go. Amen 🙏🏼
