In life, you will go through trials and tribulations that will test your faith in God. If Abraham the father of faith was tested, you will most likely be tested. If you haven’t already gone through it, be expectant, your test is on the way! You will be tested for your faith in God. You will be tested for your obedience to God.

He didn’t raise his hands or feet or eyes when beaten and battered, instead he blessed his persecutors and he prayed for them. Humility means keeping quiet when insulted or abused even though it might hurt your feelings. Humility is walking away from claiming your rights when being persecuted for it.
