“Do men think that they will be left alone on saying ‘we believe’, and that they will not be tested?”(29/2)
We are tested with affliction and hardship to check if our faith and trust in God is firm and well-rooted or is it weak and superficial.
The stronger your faith, the harder the test and the greater our reward because there is NO achievement without effort or no fruit without labour.
I am currently putting this into action and I am seeing the reward of all the effort I am putting in to the things carried out with the up most sincerity. I am able to work at a pace that I never imagined.
We can not expect to JUST believe and to fly high without learning how to deal with the hardships and coming out the other end being stronger.
