My Test

Many of us want to live a dream life, both for ourselves and our families. This can be in the form of owning a big house with enough space to relax and enjoy each day, a fancy car; many of us wish we had jobs where we didn’t have to work as hard or a job where we receive a good salary to cover all our expenses.

Have you ever stopped yourself for a second to ask this simple question: “Am I qualified for that job position or that big salary?”  I am sure each one of us would say that we are prepared and qualified without a second thought, but what if we were given a test to see how much we actually know? A test to determine whether we qualify or not?

Sometimes we do not have the answers we thought we had or the knowledge we were supposed to have. Maybe that qualifying test has come and we have failed it. Maybe we have failed it multiple times throughout our lives. Even through the failures, 
there is still hope for us. Maybe we haven’t accomplished the things we wanted to, but even with that we have a Jesus to help us out. Who does not want free help? I certainly need His help in my life.

Psalms 46:1-3 says that God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.

So, if God is our strength and refuge we only need to let Him in and he will do the rest, if we feel that we are in trouble, we must allow God to work in our hearts and he will show us the way. He will guide and give us the right step for us to pass those tests. Chapter 46 of Psalms ends with these words: “The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.”
