By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.

TEXT:

1 Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Luke 4:13 And when the Devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season.

Zech. 13:9, and I will bring the third part through the fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and will TRY them as gold is TRIED: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, the Lord is my God.

Testing does not always get in line and take it’s turn in a gentleman’s fashion.

Trials, storms, and testing come in seasons.

We must know --- THIS TOO SHALL PASS!

God loves you, He will never allow test beyond your ability to endure.

Memorize: 1 Cor. 10:13, remind our enemy.

1 Cor. 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Our enemy caught Jesus and bombed him with a series of test, then he backs off for a season. Luke 4:13.

So spiritual testing is more than an event, it is a process.

Zech. 13:9, and I will bring the third part through the fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and will TRY them as gold is TRIED: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, the Lord is my God.

If you are in the midst of a test, it is God having confidence in you, saying "YOU CAN MAKE IT."

See, problems and test are but doorways of opportunity to knowing the heart of God.

Problems and test are prophetic, God loves you. God leads you, now trust Him.

23. TESTING MAY TAKE VARIOUS FORMS, WISDOM LEARNS TO PREPARE FOR THE TEST! WISDOM LEARNS TO IDENTIFY THE TEST! WISDOM LEARNS TO THRIVE DURING SEASONS OF TESTING!

Until God’s people learn to identify seasons of testing, we are going to gather in the valleys and cry and be depressed.

Because we fail to identify the testing process, we misidentify who the enemy really is.

Wake up, smell the coffee, realize the problem ---

We search for doctors that can diagnose the sickness, because health cannot be restored until the problem is pin pointed. I pray the Holy Spirit will help us distinguish seasons of testing.

24. UNDERSTAND THE REFINING PROCESS?

In ancient days, there was no thermometers to measure the heat in the refining process.

I am told, the silver smiths knew the silver was pure when they could see a perfect reflection of their face in the silver.

As long as there was dross in the metal, the reflection was distorted.

The purpose of the refining is to see the image of Jesus Christ, the Master.
