What is the purpose of the test? When we are in school, college or institutes we hear and face the term test most because it is the parameter that shows us to display and prove how much have we learned what was taught to us.
We also have all kinds of teachers like some who make tests remarkably difficult trying to fail students and some who are happy when the students pass their test.
So then what is the purpose of God testing us? Since God is love, and he desires seeing us succeeding while we are being tested to judge if our faith in him is real or not. If he sees that we lacking in faith, then he is delighted in instructing us, hence preparing us again so that we can pass the next time. Once our faith is being proved sincere, he rewards us too.
There might be times when we feel that the sufferings are getting more aggressive and unbearable, we must also understand that prepare us to understand the truth and enabling us to help others. Our perspective towards hardships should not be of thinking to endure it, expecting it to pass away, but we must rather learn whatever it is possible so that we can support and encourage one another.
We all are going to encounter a difficult time in one way or another; hence we should be praying and depending on our Lord Jesus for strength and keeping our faith strong.
1 Peter 1:7-Your faith will be like gold that has been tested in a fire. And these trials will prove that your faith is worth much more than gold that can be destroyed. They will show that you will be given praise and honor and glory when Jesus Christ returns.”
