The Christian walk is definitely not easy. If it was, everyone would be doing it. As a child of God, there are many tests and trials that we will be subject to. Unfortunately, we won’t pass every test on the first try. Thankfully for us, we have a gracious, merciful God who loves us and will give the test as many times as it takes for us to pass it. We will get discouraged from time to time, but don’t ever get so discouraged that you turn away. And if you have gotten so discouraged that you made the decision to turn away, know that God is there, waiting for you with open arms.

In Zechariah 1:3, God says, “Return to me, and I will return to you.” Now, this is not saying that God has left you or deserted you, but it is saying that He will not talk if you aren’t trying to hear what he is saying. The Holy Spirit doesn’t get louder, just because you made the choice to entertain other things and tune Him out. Return to God. Let him order your steps. Remember, without a test, there can be no testimony.

Love and Blessings,
