Rejoice even when you’re tested to the full.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. There are times in our walk when things won’t go as planned. We’ll pray a specific prayer that will go unanswered. And in some rare cases the opposite of what you prayed for will result. This doesn’t mean that Yah does not hear you. If you are daily living out his will, practicing righteousness, and keeping the laws and commandments while exercising faith, then consider these actions a test of that faith.
All of Yah’s servants are tested, and the more faithful that servant, the bigger the test. The patriarch Abraham was among the most faithful, and his great test was whether he’d be willing to sacrifice his long-awaited son and heir, Isaac. Yah wants to prove whether or not you’ll place him first in your life, even if things aren’t going your way—and sometimes, especially if they aren’t. In times like this, we must remember—and live—the words of Habakkuk:
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, 18 yet I will rejoice in Yah! I will be joyful in the Elohim of my salvation! 19 The Sovereign Yah is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.
—Habakkuk 3:17 – 19
