Preparing For Heaven

Preparing For Heaven…

When I was in middle school, we would have air raid drills. We were ushered out into the halls, where we would get down on our knees, and put our hands over our heads. I guess they thought that the best defense against a bomb dropped by the enemies air force was to cover our heads. Of course, it was only a test. We were preparing for the possibility of a real crises by going through the test.

Real life is filled with real dangers, real threats, real problems, real disasters, and real crises. And yet, this life is neither the final story nor the final reality. This life is preparation for eternity, for the ultimate reality. This life is only a test. Its problems, its crises, its impossibilities are only tests.

For a believer, everything that happens in this life is for a purpose – to prepare you for eternal life. Every problem is an opportunity for you to rise higher and manifest your faith. So the next problem you encounter – don’t fear, don’t panic, and don’t get discouraged – See it for what it is and pass – It’s only a test.
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. 1Cor 10:13

Face any problem you encounter as a test that you already have the answer to and pass it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
