In the process of learning how to live in Jesus, we get all these tests in line with our lifestyle and our circumstances. Every single circumstance you have is designed to upgrade who you are in Jesus. Every single one without exception is designed to upgrade you. It’s designed to bring you into something new and something more. It will teach you about fullness, teach you about abundance, teach you about favor, show you authority, show you power, show you who God is for you, and open your heart up so that you begin to ask and pray differently, continuously.
