Trusting God even in the rust
James 1: 2 – 4
Jas 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Jas 1:3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
Jas 1:4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
We know the God we serve, we are sure of His love for us, but sometimes, challenges make us forget His awesomeness, so when we stop to look at Him, we end up looking at what’s before us.
Remember (John 3:14), even as the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness, so must the son of man be. Jesus has been lifted up, so that we look to Him when we are “bitten”.
Celebrating challenges is showing that we trust God, we know who He is, and we are looking up at Him, He’s our healer. Celebrate the tribulations, because it will surely end in celebration
#pray – Lord help me to delight in you always
