1Corinthians 10vs.13 says, “No temptation has overtaking you such as is common to man; but God is faithful who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear; but with the temptation he will also make a way of escape; that you may be able to bear it.”
Job 1vs 12 says, “And the Lord said to Satan, Behold, all that he has is in your hands only do not touch his person.”
Job 2 vs 6, “And the Lord said to Satan, Behold, he is in your hand only spare his life.”
Luke 22 vs 31, “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you that he may sift you as wheat.”
What you don’t like is what normally comes to you because you can overcome it. If you run away from it today, you will live to fight it tomorrow (ask Jonah).
It’s never there to kill you. For every believer, no blood leaves your veins UNLESS GOD APPROVED IT; no hair leaves your head UNLESS GOD APPROVED IT; you can’t be sick UNLESS GOD APPROVED IT(ask Job)… NOTHING happens to a believer without God’s approval (Matt 10 vs 30 says “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered”).
It is a necessary test to increase your rank in the spirit. It strengthens you; it sharpens your understanding; it reveals something new about God that you didn’t know before; it humbles you; it brings out your hidden potentials (Judges 6 vs 11-16); it builds you up; it makes you stronger so you can live longer; it shows you your limitations and where your strength lies-your limitations, so you can ask the Holy Spirit to fill up those areas, and your strengths, so you would be bold as a lion.
So if you are going through any challenges, seek to know if it’s from God; seek to know God’s will concerning it. A father never allows a task that will destroy his son.
For every challenges in your life, you will come out better for God has APPROVED IT.
God bless you.
