The Father has been testing this person for quite some time… noticing key responses at various stages of growth. He has allowed curve balls in order to witness results, while, at the same time, showed mercy in the manner they are thrown.

Being patient, understanding, and very loving, it is the Father who knows best. He keeps watch over his children and those who keep his ways.

Many are babes not yet grasping the bigger picture. Even still, they should submit to His training and growth. Truth will, indeed, come in its due season—do not sickle prematurely in its development nor painfully linger in its fruition.

Remain focused on the path… for temptations can occur in times of weakness! Be steadfast in His will and know the challenge is at hand. Will you fall into submission with the One who defends us… or fall into snares of those who cause mischief?

Once doubt enters the camp, life becomes haunted with uncertain suspicions, heinous stresses, and conning manipulations. This allowance shows lack of trust and confidence.

Endure to the end dear ones. As he said through his begotten servant:

“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

But beware of men—for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. You shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake… as a testimony against them and the Gentiles.

Yet when they deliver you up, take no thought of how or what you will speak—for it shall be given you that same moment what you shall speak. It is not you who speaks, yet the Spirit of your Father which speaks in you.

The brother shall deliver up the brother to death…
The father shall of his child…
Children shall rise up against their parents and cause them to be put to death…
And you shall be hated of these for my name’s sake…

Yet he who endures to the end shall be saved.”
