“From here on, there will be no communication whatsoever, in any way such as talking, tapping, Morse code, smoke signals, instant messaging, texting, telepathy, or any other kind of communication.”

The test was handed to me and I started. I hurdled through the questions with ease, barely tripping on any problem. I stood up and turned it in. I felt like I got a pretty good grade, considering the ease I flew through the test with. I sat back down and started reading a book.

Sometimes society gives us tests to determine who we are and what we need to do. It can be to hire for a position or for a grade in a class. I find that the tests all run the risk of misrepresentation when they have to do with “what you should be and who you are.” The only person who knows who we are and what we need to do is God. If we look to Him for guidance we can skip dangers that we would have gotten into if we had given in to society’s suggestions.

The devil tries to get us to take the tests and push us into areas that we don’t want to go. So many tests lie and say “the best place for you is to work at _____.” If God tells me to work anywhere I will, but not before. We need to be able to know that when someone hands us a test, that it very well may not be God leading us, but the devil trying (and hopefully failing in your life) to lead you into a trap.

James 1:2-4—“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”— Be ready for the tests and what comes afterwards, for God will provide.
