Prepare For The Test

30 It was Hezekiah who blocked the upper outlet of the Gihon spring and channeled the water down to the west side of the City of David. He succeeded in everything he undertook. 31 But when envoys were sent by the rulers of Babylon to ask him about the miraculous sign that had occurred in the land, God left him to test him and to know everything that was in his heart. ~ 2 Chronicles 32:30-31

God may not tempt us, but he will put us to the test. Oftentimes, the test is right before a turning point in our lives. Why? God will leave us for a short time to see if our heart is for Him or if we’re distracted. It’s to see if we’re ready for the next step. The next venture in this journey that He has for us. The thing is, God doesn’t give us a big warning before we have our big test. In fact, oftentimes, we don’t even know that we’re in a test until after we’ve finished the test.

This is the necessity of quiet time with God. We have to remain in Him in the easy times so that in the time of testing, we will remain in Him as well. We have to strengthen our spirit man now, while there is time so that when the test begins, your spirit man can stand. You have to meditate on the Word of God and memorize it so that you might use it as your defense during your test. What you do today will directly affect your test tomorrow. It will either prepare you for success, or it will prepare you for defeat.

Dear LORD, please forgive me for all the time I have wasted and not used to prepare for the tests before me. Please help me not to waste any more time. Rekindle the flame within me. Tear down the strongholds that keep me from seeking You with all that is within me. Let my mind be able to concentrate, and my heart be willing to not only read Your Word but memorize it. Renew a right spirit in me and give me a new heart. Please use me and mold me so that no matter what comes my way, I might stand.
