Since the devil knows the true value of a test (it is the solution to every single problem, when presented on the Altar of God), he tries to distort its true meaning.
Many are suffering, moaning, in despair, and unfortunately think they are being tested.
Cancer, poverty, betrayal and so many other pains, have been the synonym of a test for many.
There are even those who say:
“God is testing me!”; “I’m going through a great trial”.
However, all of this suffering is not a test!
