1 Thessalonians 5

Read 1 Thessalonians chapter 5

“Test all things; hold fast what is good.” I Thessalonians 5:21 NKJV

This verse has special memories for me. It has kept me out of trouble many times!  You see, the devil is hasty, and he will seek to rush you into unwise decisions. On the other hand, the Holy Spirit is gentle, he is not a taskmaster. Now let’s look at this same verse in the amplified bible. 

“But test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast.” 1 Thessalonians 5:21

I love that “until you can recognize“ part. You see, God is patient with us. I believe there are times He is trying to lead us, but we are not understanding him. Unlike the devil, who will seek to force us , the Holy Spirit will patiently work with us until we can recognize what is good!  Wow! That’s so good!!
