The Word Tests
Isn’t it a joyous feeling when you watch/receive a prophetic word that resonates with your Spirit? But my question to you is, what do you do when the door to the furnace of God opens up? When that very word begins to test you, are you holding on to the promise in the fire or do you instantly give up?
In Psalm 105:19, it speaks of the word of God trying Joseph until it came to pass. If there's one thing you've learned about Joseph, he went through so much to fulfill the promise of God. It took betrayal, disappointment, imprisonment and abandonment to get him to where God needed him to be. He even experienced people lying on his name! Don't you know that God's word can test you in the same way? As displeasing as this can be, it's the truth.
Today, I want to free you from the way you’re perceiving your current circumstances. Most of what we go through is a result of what’s been spoken over us. In order for a prophecy to come to pass, many will agree that the opposite occurs first. So instead of despising your trials, see them as a test preparing you for the fulfillment of God’s promises in your life.
“Until the time that his word came to pass, The word of the Lord tested him.”
Psalms 105:19 NKJV
Reflection Question(s): We invite you to discuss below.
When you look at your life currently, in what area(s) do you find yourself being tested the most? Why do you believe you are more focused on the test and not the purpose of the test?
