Heart Test

March 18, 2015

Proverbs 17:3

The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold,
But the Lord tests the hearts.


How many of us knew the Lord actually tests our hearts!?

When I face trials, or situations that are not easy or enjoyable I quickly wonder if God is testing my heart. I try to look for what God can do in this situation. I try to look for what junk God can remove out of my heart in this trial or situation, or “test”.

That is why it is extremely important to understand the ways of God, the heart of God and the love God has for us. God does not test to be some evil dictator as we could so easily start to think in our simple minds.

Instead God wants us to grow more into the image of Christ (Hebrews 10:14), being filled with the fruits of the Spirit. Which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control.

You may be asking, how do I really know this? How do I really know God wants me to be more like Christ?

That is why it is so important to spend time every day in God’s Word. The Bible is a love letter from God. It shows us the personality and ways of God. The more we read and learn, the more God can reveal to us His powerful truths by His Spirit.

Human reasoning will never be able to grasp the Bible. We must be led by God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit of God.
