Times of Trials

 

"Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."

James 1:12 [NKJV]

 

There will be times of trials.

Look at Job for an example of perseverance during a trial.

Job was angry, but he did not surrender into the Devil's hands.

He did not give up.

He did not stop serving God.

Job cried and expressed his pain during the enemy's attack.

It's ok to do this but know your God.

During the trial, Job argued with himself, not with God.

He fought within himself to stand firm under attack.

There will be times of trial...make no doubt about it.

However, press through knowing who your God is.

He will bring you out & blessings will await you on the other side.

God will restore all the enemy has stolen.

He will give you double portion, the crown of life for persevering.

There will be times of trials,

But you will make it through by trusting God & believing Him.

 

"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing."

James 1:1-3 [NKJV]
