God uses times of uncertainty to show you who you really are. Any low point you are going through is simply a test. God already knows how everything will turn out, but He is trying to show you some things. Proverbs tells us that if we quit in the times of adversity, then we have small strength (24:10). Times of uncertainty give us two options. You can either give up and try to figure life out on your own or continue to trust God even when it may get somewhat scary.
Life’s tests are also learning experiences. We find out if we are as faithful as we claim to be (or want others to think we are). These are the times where we need to be totally real and honest with ourselves. If we realize we don’t trust God like we should, then we should figure out why. If we are going through the same tests repeatedly, then we need to figure out what God is trying to show us. Trusting in God during hard times is the difference between letting the world beat us down and allowing the Lord to lift us up!
