What Was I Thinking!?
Our spiritual walk can be the same way. We can be spending time with God daily and reading in His Word daily and growing! But sometimes we are thrown into a difficult situation that exercises our faith in a way that we have never done before and it can be very painful. But the thing is, we can get through that exercise because Christ is with us and will help us through it. Hebrews 2:18 (NLT) says, "Since He Himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested." Our faith may be tested unlike it has been tested before, but think of the amazing work God is doing in your heart as a result. You are exercising and growing into an oak of righteousness (Isaiah 61:3) full of endurance (James 1:4). That is a promise to hold on to during the trials.
Is your faith being exercised in a new way?
