A reminder for today
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. (James1:2)
Don’t you just love this verse? It is so awesome. James says when trouble comes your way you must be happy. Have you ever felt like that? When you are facing massive amounts of obstacles and your work load is about to drive you insane, are you happy and laughing? I must say I fail miserably when it comes to being happy about trouble, but let’s look at the rest of what James says:
For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. (Verse 3-4)
Trouble tests our faith and when we succeed our faith grows and grows, because we keep our trust in Jesus knowing it will all be well in the end. This is what I love so much about this scripture. You see instead of breaking down we must stand up and take these troubles with faith so that we can grow. Wow I am in awe of how God works.
So today, my dear friend, we are going to laugh in the face of danger and trust God with all our hearts. We will take our challenges with joy and defeat the enemy with a smile.
I pray that you will stand in your storms firmly grounded on Jesus and that you will face your troubles with joy as we trust Jesus completely. In Jesus name.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
