Food for the thought Bread of life: WHEN YOU WRITE AN EXAMINATION, THE TEACHER IS QUIET By Pastor Vusimusi John Sigudla

Date: 16/07/2018

71The suffering you sent was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your principles. Psalm 119:71

 

  1. There is a teaching time that god provide for each and every one of us. Then there is a testing or examination time to see whether we had learned during the lecture periods.

When we go to Church and learn the Word in our conferences, God is preparing us for an Examination. Any Examination is very tough and frightening and not refreshing.  We are therefore being prepared for the toughest times of the test of our faith.

 

  1. DURING THE EXAMINATION THE TEACHER IS QUIET.
  • Have you ever seen a teacher, teaching during examination time? No!! That is not allowed. You learn now what you are going to recall when you write your examination.
  • During examination, cell phones are not allowed in the exam room.
  • During examination, friends are not allowed in the exam room.
  • During the examination, speaking is not allowed in the exam room.
  • During examination, study is not allowed in the exam room.
  • During examination, going up and down is not allowed in the Exam room.
  • During the examination, calling your friends and the love ones is not allowed in the exam room.
  • During your examination, you are not allowed to request for answers from others.
  • During the examination even your teacher who might happen to be your cousin, brother, father, mother or Uncle, they stay away from you.

 

There is also a specific time frame for your exams, you don’t write your exam for the rest of the day. But that 2hours of your exam is like 5 hours.

 

  1. APPLICATION IN OUR LIVES
  • Testing as Christians is exactly like what I have written, about taking an Examination.
  • The great Teacher Jesus, become quiet, saying nothing to you and you will depend on the knowledge you learned in the Classroom of the Christian journey, learned from the Holy Spirit.
  • During those trialing times, Christian friends become minimal.
  • Those who use to phone you, they cease phoning.
  • Verses that you use to quote for others disappears.
  • Your Christian brothers and sisters seems to be very far or aloof from you.
  • No one is interested in speaking to you a word of encouragement.
  • Going to Church become very difficult and you are bored by even the Bible.
  • Prayer become a big burden.
  • If all these things are happening to you, you must know that you are going through a serious examination and your Teacher, Rabbi, Mentor, Jesus, is quiet. You try to pray and your prayers hit the ceiling. You try to cry, and no one take you serious. You try to communicate, no one is communicating back. You try to fast, it also become very hard to complete the fasting as you use to do.

 

 

You are indeed writing a spiritual Examination, and once you pass it, you will be taken to the next level of God’s dimensions.

Hence David said in this Psalm:

71The suffering you sent was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your principles. Psalm 119:71

 

Hallelujah

Don’t faint away, God has his own exams for each and every one of us. It all depends on the spiritual standard that you are doing at the moment.

 

Shalom and be blessed.
