Tests Are Temporary

All tests are temporary, limited in duration. 1 Peter 1:6 says,

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

Some tests end on earth, but all tests will end in heaven, right?

In the meantime, let God train you. He watches the way you handle the little jobs. Jesus promised in Matthew 25:21, “If you are faithful over a few matters, I will set you over many.” Do you aspire to do great things? Excel in the small things. Don’t complain. Let others grumble. Not you. When you’re given a task, take it. When you see a hurt, address it. Compassion matters to God. This is the time for service, not self-centeredness. Cancel the pity party. Love the people God brings to you. He will work in you what is pleasing to Him. And be reminded— you will get through this!
