Strong Faith

In order to have strong faith, it must be sorely tested, refined, and purified. It’s the testing and refining and purifying that is hard—so hard to endure, so hard to understand, so hard to accept. I am just. I keep My Word. I am faithful. But My ways are so much higher than your ways (Isa.55:9). My priorities are so different from your priorities. You want quick answers, visible results. I’m almost always after something deeper, even more precious and long-lasting—the kind of results that take time. This Earth and your short life here is a testing ground, there are no two ways about it. There’s no way to come to Earth, learn what you need to learn, grow in the ways your spirit needs to grow, experience what you need to experience, and accomplish what you need to accomplish without this sore, painful testing. That’s the Earth life. That’s life experience on Earth, and that’s why what you learn during your life on Earth is so valuable—irreplaceable, really—because it’s so hard earned… But there are limits to how much I can deliver you from the difficulties without taking away your honor, your reward, your testimony, your privilege.

I can’t spare you from all the difficulty or it wouldn’t be a test—or a testimony. You would be cheated out of what you signed up to come to Earth for in the first place.

My loves, there’s no “secret answer” that I can give you that is going to see you through the tough times you’re experiencing now‚ or the ones you’re going to go through in the future. But what will see you through is faith—faith that never lets go, that never gives up.
