1 Corinthians 15:31, "...I die every day!" Just when we think we are really trusting GOD something happens to "shake" us. Yes, we have been going along giving "everything" to GOD to see us through and we gain confidence in our trust of HIM. Then something we have put in the back of our minds comes back to make us feel guilty or completely want to run. This test is allowed to see if you really believe you are forgiven; to see if you are really a new person in CHRIST or just a "patched up" old self. A test is not to see if you pass or fail; it is the verification of worth. Romans 12:2, "...by testing you may discern what is the will of GOD..." Did you test your faith in this situation and did you discover you are forgiven? You are NEW in CHRIST, you just verified your faith in GOD. HE already knows it, HE just wants you to know it. So when you die everyday, you are giving up more of yourself so there is more room for JESUS.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
