THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
KEEP BEING YOUR BEST WITH WHAT YOU HAVE
Sometimes when we’re being tested by discouragement, it seems God is SILENT. We pray and don’t HEAR anything. We read the Scripture and STILL come away feeling as though God is a MILLION miles away. It’s easy to think something must be wrong. But remember, this is a TEST. You have to pass the test of being FAITHFUL where you ARE. Keep STRETCHING, PRAYING, and BELIEVING. The next step IS coming—an INCREASE step, a FAVOR step, a HEALING step, a BREAKTHROUGH step. When God is SILENT, don’t assume He’s LEFT you or is MAD at you. He is right there WITH you during the test. His silence is a sign that He has great CONFIDENCE in you and He has PREPARED you, and now He is watching to see if you have LEARNED. He knows you will come through the test VICTORIOUSLY or He would not have PERMITTED you to be TESTED. Keep being your BEST with what you HAVE.
James 1:3, NLT
For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.
