Christians, We are in a Window of Testing – Charisma News

Author and podcast host, Candice Smithyman, shared how we are currently in a window of time before the traditional Jewish celebration of when the Torah was received on Mount Sinai. During this time table, she believes we are being tested for expansion purposes.

“If you’re going through a testing time for supernatural provision, God is releasing covenant-well strategies,” Smithyman says on her “Manifest His Presence” podcast. “He is releasing how He wants His people to think during this time.”

At some point in time, we will all be tested. After all Scripture tells us that to whom much is given, much is required. Just as the Israelites were given the commandments so they could grow closer to God and live in the ways He desired them to, He also will test us and give us commands to make us more Christlike.

“I know it’s been difficult. And I know you’ve been humbled. And I know you’ve been going, ‘God, listen, I don’t get it. I don’t understand…’ this is a great revelation time. It was for the Israelites [and] it even was for the disciples,” Smithyman says.

Smithyman says this time of testing and proving is necessary because it makes us learn how to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit. Just as the Israelites left the place of captivity and saw miracles abound, they had to be tested while they were in the wilderness so that they could manage the Promised Land God was bringing them into.

“This time of testing and proving is going to reveal to you that which is going to hold you back from the land that God is taking you to…He needed to show you what was in your heart, whether or not you would obey His commandments, whether or not you would follow after every word that proceeded out of the mouth of the Lord,” Smithyman says.
