What does it mean to test God? Testing God is when we haven't prayed or planned and just jump expecting God to bail us out if we can't fly. Jesus is tempted to do this when he was asked to jump off the top of the temple so that the angelic rescue would be a testimony to God’s power. When we test God we hold Him hostage, put God in the role of servant, at the beck and call of us when we’re in a bind. It’s when we make our belief in Him contingent upon this kind of demonstration that we’re testing God. Join Jesus in trusting that God will take care of you and seeking a life of faith where we are not in control but God is.
