The Test

Next Jesus was taken into the wild by the Spirit for the Test. The Devil was ready to give it.2 Jesus prepared for the Test by fasting forty days and forty nights. - Matt 4 v 1 & 2

Being honest often when faced with difficulty and problems my temptation is to turn it into a test to see if God will come through for me rather than a test for me to come through for God.

I think it is because very often I don't prepare as Jesus did ahead of time. Over the last couple of months I have spent so much time trying to convince my son that preparing for his mocks is a great thing to do. I have helped with timetables and sat with him to study. Ive done algebra for the first time in over 30 years. All so he could be prepared for the test.

Maybe I need to learn something.
