Passing the Double for Trouble Test

 

Passing the test could bring double for the trouble!

 

If the enemy came before the Lord to ask his permission to come against you, do you think that you would pass the test?

Sometimes, it is good to know that god can recommend us to the enemy; actually it shows that God can trust us!

God knows the heart and faith of those who will be able to keep the faith and stand against the attacks of the enemy.  Job was a man that God recommended to Satan.

God knew that Job was so faithful and loved him so that no matter what, Job was going to keep his integrity and endure the test!

Can you endure the test?

What if Satan wanted permission to attack in your life, would God be able to grant him permission?

That’s really something to think about!

This is a good question for all of us to re-evaluate our faith and trust in God:

Do we give up and fall into despair and discouragement too easily?

Do we complain at the drop of a hat?

Is our faith shaky and unstable?

Do we trust god no matter what comes up in our lives?

Job trusted God and declared that no matter what has come against me, I am going to wait until my change come!

What about you and me?

Are we able to wait on our change?

Would we pass the test like job?

Job did and in the end God blessed him with twice as much as he had before!  We can do the same by trusting god and keeping the faith through our trials!

Passing the test could bring in double for all of the trouble!

Passing the Double for Trouble Test — 1 Comment

  1. Matthew 10:28-39

    New Living Translation (NLT)

    28 “Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell.[a] 29 What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin[b]? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. 30 And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

    32 “Everyone who acknowledges me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.

    34 “Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword.

    35 ‘I have come to set a man against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
    and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
    36 Your enemies will be right in your own household!’[c]

    37 “If you love your father or mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than me, you are not worthy of being mine. 38 If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. 39 If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.
