Life is a test.
Life is a trust.
Life is a temporary assignment.
Character is both developed and revealed by tests.
And all of life is a test.Rick Warren
James 1:12 ~ Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
When you understand that life is a test,
You then realize that
nothing is insignificant
in your life.Rick Warren
Psalm 19:1 ~ The heavens declare the glory of God, and announce what His hands have made.
We are tested by: Major changes, Delayed Promises, Impossible Problems, Unanswered Prayers, Undeserved Criticism, and Senseless Tragedies.
2 Corinthians 4:18 ~ We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see.
Romans 11:36 ~ Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by His power and everything is for His glory.
1 Corinthians 10:13 ~ The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, He will also give you a way to escape, so that you will be able to stand it.
We are tested. Our faith is tested through the problems that come into our lives. Our hope is tested by how we handle our possessions. And our love is tested through the people we encounter.
