We can’t ask God to put us back in 6th grade because 7th grade seems too hard! There is no going back! You are finish with the 6th grade!
The reason why we finished the 7th grade is because we successfully passed all the lessons of the 6th grade! The same way God equipped us to complete the 6th grade, is the system He uses for us to successfully pass all the lessons of the 7th grade!
- Listen to the teacher.
- Take good notes.
- Study your notes and your textbook! (The Bible)
- Minimize distractions! (Important)
- Get proper nourishment and sleep before the final test!
- Let go of fear and nervousness!
- Come prepared to take your final exam.
The same holds true for this faith journey. Once we pass one challenge or test, we will move to the next lesson. We are always taught the lesson before we are faced with the final exam on a particular subject.
Just as we need to use the tools mentioned above to pass a classroom test, God uses these tools to teach us how to successfully pass the tests He gives.
His ultimate purpose is to mature us spiritually.
Ephesians 4:15 states,
15 “God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love – like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do.”
Follow the path to successfully test taking and you will pass with flying colors!!!!!!
Remember, there is no going back!!
