As women, we sometimes wonder why does God allow tests and trials? Tests come to help strengthen us. As we go THROUGH a test we gain an anointing oil that can help us witness to others when they go THROUGH their tests. But how do do you deal with the pressure that comes from testing?
I was going through a huge test once and a pastor said, "Don't pray to get out of it or avoid it. Pray for strength to get THROUGH it." That stuck with me. I then understood that when I was going through a fire or flood, God was always with me and He was making me stronger. God says to us in Isaiah 43:2, "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee."
But, to receive that strength I had to change my perspective and go from a victim mindset of "Why is this happening to me?" to a victorious mindset, "I am more than a conqueror," and "God supplies ALL my needs."
As you go through any testing, remember, this is ONLY a test. And, you can do all things THROUGH Christ who strengthens you...
