The Flesh Test Scale

Questions 1-6 Give yourself 1 point for every "yes" answer

Questions 7-10 Give yourself 1 point for every "no " answer

If you 1-2 points you may be a little weighed down in your race but are probably doing pretty good, resting is Gods' grace, spending time daily with the King in the Word /in prayer /in church / memorizing scripture and thinking of others often.

If you got 3-6 points you're a bit fleshy and need to put on more of Gods' armor like the shield of faith, the belt of peace, and the sword which is the Word of God. ( read Eph. 6: 10-18 )

If you got 7-10 points don't loose hope,at least you're being honest with youself. God wants to take off some of that "weight which so easily ensnares you" so that you CAN run with endurance. The key is to "keep your eyes on Jesus, the author and the finisher of your faith". He knows what you need when you need it so look to Him for everything; be in the Word with expectation to hear from the Lord, pray with thanks, share your faith, sing to the Lord- even when you don't feel like it.
James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

Answer to #11 is JESUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be encouraged, God has made a unique and special path just for you to run with endurance. He won't give you more than what you can handle and He wants to use whatever situation you are in for His glory.

And remember when it rains it falls on the just and unjust alike !!!!!!!!!!!
