Litmus Test “something (such as an opinion about a political or moral issue) that is used to make a judgment about whether someone or something is acceptable.” ~ Mirriam Webster
The Biblical Litmus Test
How do you respond to situations in your life that would or could move you right into fear, anxiety, or both? The Bible is full of examples of men and women professing to live by faith, and their hearts were steadfast in the face of a diversity of horrible circumstances. Stephen in the face of a mob stoning proclaimed God, Elisha in the midst of an enemy ambush saw defending angels on the hillsides, Moses at the Dead Sea with the children of Israel didn’t fear but spoke of the Salvation of His God! Not every story ends with life, but every story ends with LIFE!
Your Litmus Test
When you are under attack (physically, spiritually, emotionally, relationally, financially, or any other way) what do you default to? Fear or Faith?
All of those stories and ours are to example faith in the face of fear! Faith in What? Faith in your Father’s love for you, that He is good and whatever the outcome at hand, He has your best interest in mind. In death, in life, in any and every circumstance, He has your back! Trust Him!

1 John 4:16-18 NKJV
16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
17 Love has been perfected among us in this:that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love

The Conclusion to Litmus Test
If your response is not faith, your faith in the temporal outweighs your faith in the Supernatural.
