Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3
How do we react when we face trials in life? We typically moan and complain, feel sorry for ourselves, but should we consider it joy?
Perseverance is defined as doing something despite difficulty, spreading the Gospel of Christ won’t be easy, you will be mocked, ridiculed, and maybe hated but your faith will grow stronger thru your trials.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:4
How do you know when your ready for anything? You study for a test, or you train for a job, how do you know when your ready? Experience is the only way, and during that experience you will face trials which will make you stronger and wiser to persevere
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5
Many will say they don’t understand the Bible or understand God, that’s because there leaning on there own understanding. True wisdom comes from God thru the Holy Spirit, ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find.
But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. James 1:6-9
There are many false religions and prophets out there that’s why its important to have strong faith, if you don’t really know the Word of God you will doubt yourself which causes wavering. Build your foundation of faith thru perseverance and thru truth in Jesus Christ Amen
