This Is Only A Test

BEEEEEP! This is a test. This is only a test. Had this been an actual emergency the signal you just heard would have been followed by official news, information, or instruction. I repeat, this is only a test.
We face many tests in life, some we pass, some we fail miserably. When I fail, it’s because I’ve taken my eyes off God and focused on either myself, or the situation. Which means I don’t trust God enough, or think He’s powerful enough to handle my problems.
Nothing happens that God doesn’t see! He often will allow us to go through tests to see if we truly trust Him. When the test is over, I usually find myself saying “why was I so upset? God was in control the whole time!” He has a plan for every person and every situation! While we’re busy making mountains out of molehills, our God’s not at all worried! He sees all, knows all, and He’s powerful enough to handle any situation we find ourselves in!
1 Corinthians 10:13 says, No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down, He’ll never let you be pushed past your limit and He’ll always be there to help you pull through. How awesome is that?!?
Don’t freak out when faced with tests in life. Take that test with confidence, knowing that the One who made you will never let you down. He will help you pass with flying colors! Should you fail? He’ll be there to help you get through the extra chaos you caused when you chose not to trust Him :-). And I bet, if we are still and quiet, and Seek The Lord (aka, study,and pray), maybe, just maybe, we would hear the instructions after the beep.
