      Let’s take a look today at two tests:

      (1) The offense test. Jesus said, “Offenses will come” (Lk 17:1). So be ready! Those who lead always take the worst of the flack. The front line is no place for the weak-willed or the weak-kneed. So, what are you going to do when offenses come? Get mad and get nowhere?

      Get even and get into trouble? Or get over it by practicing forgiveness. “If you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins” (Mk 11:25 NIV).

      (2) The warfare test. This test is for those who claim to be strong in faith, but prove to be weak in fight. “When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, ‘If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt‘” (Ex 13:17 NIV). Now, you haven’t been called to be insensitive and abrasive, but if your destiny is worth pursuing - it’s worth fighting for! So, toughen up! It’s a battlefield, not a bed of roses. You must engage the enemy each day using each spiritual weapon at your disposal.

      If you don’t he’ll steal every God-given blessing you’ve got, including your identity, your testimony, your integrity, your family, your calling, and your future. This test demonstrates your ability to continue in your vision even while you‘re experiencing disappointment and opposition. So remember, the level of attack is the best indicator as to the level of blessing that waits for you beyond the attack!

      Scripture Of The Day: “Test me, O Lord...Examine my heart and my mind.” - Psalm 26:2 NIV
