Just as I was tested in the wilderness before I was promoted in ministry, it is true that every test yields way to increase.  When I saw that the great crowd of people on the hill had no food, I already knew what I would do to feed them.  Yet I asked Philip where we could buy bread to feed all those people.  Why did I test Philip?  Because I wanted to examine and scrutinize his faith for the miracle to come.  I not only called attention to the need and challenged Philip if he had the answer for provision, I was setting him up to receive the miracle to come.  The answer to every test, is that you dont have the answer.  I AM your answer.


John 6:6 AMP

But He said this to prove (test) him, for He well knew what He was about to do.




NT:3985 peirazo (pi-rad'-zo); from NT:3984; to test (objectively), i.e. endeavor, scrutinize, entice, discipline:

KJV - assay, examine, go about, prove, tempt (-er), try.



2 Cor 13:4-5 NKJV

For though He was crucified in weakness, yet He lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, but we shall live with Him by the power of God toward you.   Examine {3985}  yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?


Heb 2:17-18 NKJV

Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, {3985}  He is able to aid those who are tempted.


Rev 3:10 KJV

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try {3985} them that dwell upon the earth.
