Test to Testimony

gethsemaneOne of the lowest moments, I believe, Jesus ever experienced was in the garden of Gethsemane. Would He go to the cross for which He was destined? He struggled alone as His friends lay asleep. He was so alone. His entire life had been lived in constant communication with His Dad. They literally talked over everything; and yet, now the lines were down. He was completely alone. So alone in fact that He sweat blood. I can only imagine the high He felt after the cross and through the grave when those lines were up and running again with the Father.
It’s been said that you can’t have the highs without first experiencing the lows. You don’t really know what feeling full is without having felt being hungry. There was no resurrection without death. There’s no testimony without a test.
We must first see our need for Jesus and then transfer our trust to Him, which for almost all of us occurs during challenges, often severe ones. (Hebrews 12:7-11) It is as we see Jesus work in our life that we can now be a witness, one who has experienced Jesus firsthand.
Choose to trust Jesus, even during the low moments. The highs are coming and oh what a story you’ll be able to tell when they come!
