God tests us, not because He wonders what we will do, but because He wants us to see what is in our hearts. When a test comes, will we obey Him or disobey? We must know this about ourselves to learn to do what is right. If we obey God, then He will bless us. However, disobedience is the first of many steps down a path that passes through compromise and ends in great sin. Please open your Bible to Judges, chapter three, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola details the slippery slope down which Israel slid. Then he will tell us how to prevent from this happening to us.
