Your circumstances are never the problem. It is your perception of your circumstances that is the problem. So many Christians really step back from tests. We think tests and problems are bad for us, or something to be avoided, or put off to a later time. What if a test is a shortcut into the place you have been trying to get into? What if a problem is a bridge to get you across into a different dimension of life? What if behind a test really lies an acceleration? How you view a test could actually be the real problem.
