This life is only a test. I am testing each of My children to examine the motives of their hearts. Is your heart completely Mine? Do you trust Me regardless of how things look or the perceived outcome? Whether you understand or agree with My ways does not matter. You must show complete humility and trust in Me even when you do not understand. Choose to believe that I am good…ALWAYS. Once you have this belief firmly established, it will make your daily choices and obedience that much easier.
So many judge by outward appearances, but I do not judge as man does. Trust Me. As you obey Me in the little things, learning to do so from a heart of love instead of duty, you will begin to really know Me. As you come to know Me better, you will see for yourself how good I really am. Even when you cannot see, you will have enough experience to gladly yield to Me and My ways. As you do, I will be able to trust you with more. You will look more and more like My Son. You will have My heart. That is what I am looking for.
I long to give you more than you even desire to receive. Stop judging by your natural eyes and learn to see with your spiritual eyes. Ask Me for wisdom, for I will not withhold it from you. You are well on your way to gaining understanding. One day all will be seen clearly, and you will joyfully receive My welcome home, "Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master."
Matthew 13:57 New Century Version (NCV)
So the people were upset with Jesus. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is honored everywhere except in his hometown and in his own home.”
John 7:18 New Century Version (NCV)
Those who teach their own ideas are trying to get honor for themselves. But those who try to bring honor to the one who sent them speak the truth, and there is nothing false in them.
John 16:13 New International Version (NIV)
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
