THEME:TEST, TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS
TEXT: Deut 8:1-3
There is a correlation between obedience to God’s law and living. Those this mean that those who are not obedient to God ain’t living? They are but limitedly physical. God introduces us as children to a portion found only in Christ that is only accessed via obedience to Him. This means that God is not so excited about our physical existence alone but our actual living.
The lands God was referring to in Drug 8 was not just the physical landmass but a spiritual portion eg, the academic, religion. The degree of the expanse of land one is given is according to their degree of faith as they can observe ‘to do’.
While it is important to master where God is taking us TO, it is much more important to master what/how God is taking us THROUGH. There are things God will make us pass through only because of where he is taking us to.
- Do not miss the essence of the pain because you are holding on to the reality of the pain.
- The spirit realm is far clearer than the physical.
God brings us through to TEST our capacity to sustain our Inheritance.
°God will Test your Faithfulness with;
-Another man’s property
-Pain ; the pain that comes from God becomes constructive as it ends to yield a wholesome result. It is not in the nature of God to entrust his inheritance into the hands of scarless/ innocent men.
The Joy of God is his persistent love for us to always pick us up after a failed test to prepare us for another.
There is no Trust without a Test because God’s Trust is the greatest gift any man can possess. This is God’s only concern. If you can’t pass God’s Test of God, you cannot earn the Trust of God.
