Be happy when being tested,
In so many different ways;
God checks what He has invested,
While you are living these days.
Testing produces endurance,
Of your faith by testing its strength;
Enabling to give assurance,
For to persevere any length.
Endure until the test is done,
Then you see if you are mature;
Knowing victory has been won,
Feeling His Spirit at the core.
For you will be feeling complete,
And you will not need anything;
Since you were able to defeat,
The iniquities that did cling.
If any of you needs wisdom,
For knowing of what you should do;
Pray to God up in His Kingdom,
He will give to help you construe.
God is generous to each one,
And tries not to find fault with them;
Regardless of what we have done,
He is not judging to condemn.
When you are asking for something,
Please do not hold onto a doubt;
For any doubts will never bring,
A successful result about.
If you have doubts do not expect,
Anything given by the Lord;
Doubts is causing Him to reject,
And any requests are ignored.
Let not the double minded man,
Who is unstable in His ways;
And confused with a doubtful plan,
Which causes detours as he strays.
Humble believers should be proud,
From how being humble does make;
Constantly looking to the cloud,
Knowing that Christ will not forsake.
