God: will allow us to be tested…
Matthew 4:1-3 (KJV) “When was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.”
Times and circumstances come upon us wherein we are tested and have to go through unusual things which bring something out of the core of our insides. The test is whether we overcome and if we are able to withstand the pressures to go against what we know to be right.
Sometimes it is tempting to just give in to pressure, no matter where it comes from, but in this season, this is where perseverance dictates standing up for something.
We might never understand why when we withstood tempting that it was good for us, but ultimately it becomes clear.
Fight the good fight.
