Passing the Test

Romans 5:3-4

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

We have to be really careful when announcing to someone that their test and their trial is over. I understand that we prophesy by calling things into existence; however, influencing someone that they have passed their test is passed while their character is still jacked up is a farce. You will know when your test is passed and others in your circle of influence will know it too. Your attitude will change. Your speech will change. Your mannerisms will change. You will be more mature. You will worship differently. You will praise differently and you will handle relationships differently because you have grown in that area.

If fact, let me go deeper. You know for yourself when you have not passed your test because you will still feel defeated in that area. You will still struggle and still be emotionally vulnerable in that area, so don’t let folk lie to you and tell you that your trial is over. Indeed, some day it will, hopefully sooner than later, but the end result will always depend upon your response to your trial. You can master it or not, but NO ONE has the right to place a period where God has placed a comma.
