Pass or Fail

Pass or Fail

Saturday our men’s prayer  had what one might call question and answer day. We had many good question and answers, but there was one question that stood out.

Why do I fail so many of God’s test?

I being the leader of failure the past week with a laptop that is sick and in a coma. Trapped inside that laptop is all the stuff I have been working on, then there is all that stuff I have out there in cyber-space I need to be working on, and at work ##@#/ ##**/ and *&*@@#!

I am the King of Failure!

NIV James 1:2-4

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trails of many kinds, because you know the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

This was not the answer we were, I was, looking for. We, I, have heard many a sermon on this passage of Scripture and none was filling the void in the question. No religiousestly and christaneeze could answer this big hole in that question.

Why do I Fail God’s test?

So we prayed!

NIV Mark 9: 23-24

“If you can?” said Jesus, “Everything is possible for him who believes!”

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help my unbelief!”

Without testing there is no belief.

God’s testing is not a pass or fail test,

the Test is to help us believe.

So we prayed!

  1. There are different reasons why we fail the spiritual battles — perhaps the biggest part is not recognizing them as spiritual, which means we tackle them on our own strength. Or maybe we sometimes call defeat a “failure” when God calls it “Lesson learned”? what kind of people would we become if we passed every test we took?

    But we can do something to equip ourselves for some technological battles. With regard to you laptop woes, perhaps Dropbox or some other “storage” would help. I store backups of almost everything on Dropbox, in case my computer ever crashes.

    • I do not disagree with you at all. One the bibles examples of test and failure was Abraham in our eyes it looks like Abraham had failed many test, Like when He went to Egypt. Yet when he was asked to to sacrifice Isaac Abraham by that time had learn to believe. Even in what we see as a failure of a test, on the other side of the test Our God uses it help us believe.
      As for my technological woes yes I use Drop box and Google Docs, my laptop is still in a coma and I am using an old eMac that will not open the files because it is to old and it is to old to update the software. Again on wordpress there is a lot of things I can not open for the same reason. I am only able to respond to you now because of some back door thing I am doing if you ask how I am doing that I have no idea it just works for now. I am very grateful to God for what is working and not upset about is not.
      I am sorry I pushed publish be I wanted. I want to say Thank-you for your comment I did enjoy it very much and still agree with what you said. Again thank-you and God Bless!

  2. Good post on a good topic! I believe learning how to face the disposition of the tests we face helps us mature. I look forward to reading more of your blog. Also, thank you for following my blog at Faith1st Ministry. I hope it has and will continue to be a major blessing in your life. May God richly bless you as you continue to write and blog. Please continue with us on this journey and remember to have Faith 1st. — Sebastian
