Spiritual Success

God tests us so that we can succeed and get stronger in love and faith toward Him. He desires for us to pass every test with a 100, and He even gives us what we need to succeed if we trust Him. Why do believers fail God’s tests then? I believe it is for 2 reasons, lack of trust in Him and a belief that spiritual success is too difficult and almost impossible, so people do not really try. Job shows us it is possible when we trust the Lord.(Job 23:10,11)

Think about it. God wants us to grow. He does not want us to fail. However, growth requires effort. Success is never easy, but it is possible. Realize you can’t do anything without Jesus. Begin trusting Him in everything and watch to see what God does for you. It is amazing! Job had trouble, big trouble. It was to prove his faith. He knew he would come out like gold in the fire. Why? He knew he was staying right in step with God. That is what it takes. It is worth it. Spiritual success is so much better than the alternative that it is worth whatever it takes to trust Him.

Tomorrow, I intend to read Job 25-27.
