Between the treasure rooms of heaven and the manifestation of the promise in your life, just like we’ve established there are also other “smaller” “promise lands”, “comings of Christ” and “last days” that need to be consistent with the will of God. These can be things like the words you’re saying about that thing, the actions you’re taking about it, the kind of help you’re accepting, what you’re thinking about it, etc.

These are the out workings of your faith. They retain and convey the power of God in and through your life. It is God who causes these out workings in you, He works in us both to will and to act on our will in agreement with His own will. He does this in order to preserve our salvation(promise land) which is ready to be revealed in the “last time”.(I Peter 1:5)

It is crucial that these out workings are tested, tried and proved. This testing process is fundamentally important for ensuring that whatever makes it to the place of manifestation is “Christ”, so that God alone will get the glory, thereby covering more of the earth with the knowledge of His glory, which is what He has always wanted.

While you are rejoicing in faith for the manifestation of the word of God yet to come, it will be necessary for a little while to have you …grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, (I Peter 1:6-7 NKJV). Don’t struggle with that word “grieved”, it simply means “to distress” or “to challenge your comfort zone”, in order words “to test you”.

The focus here is your response in the midst of that distress, just like the popular saying, “it is not what happens to you but your response in the midst of it all.” Scripture teaches us that whatever is born of God overcomes the world, so by the time the testing is over and Christ is revealed in that situation of sickness in the form of healing, all the glory will go to God, because only the seed of God could have survived that onslaught you went through. Everybody will know, even you will know it was God. Everything that led up to the manifestation will be screaming God. God doesn’t joke with His glory.
