“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing” ( James 1:2-4).
How can you rejoice when you are faced with challenges? Our memory verse is one subject that many believers would really struggle with. How do you rejoice when you are experiencing a major trauma eg the loss of a loved one? Yet, that is exactly what St James is asking us to do as believers . Believe me, this will be difficult with the natural man; only the Holy Spirit of God dwelling in a man can accomplish this.
Remember Joseph in prison for crime he did not commit. Remember Daniel being thrown into the lion den following false accusations. Did you expect them to rejoice? You will notice that both joy and long suffering are together as fruit of the Spirit: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” ( Galatians 5:22-23).
Learning to rejoice and praise God in the middle of problem is a life secret that many believers need to learn . Remember when king Jehoshaphat of Judah was to be attacked by three nations . How he appointed praise singers to praise God and all his enemies turned against themselves (2Chronicles 20:21-23).
This explains why apostle Paul standing on the word of God, assured us:
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” ( Romans 8:28).
There is no problems that you are having now that others have not passed through; others have gone through worse problems.
Have you praised God in Christ Jesus this morning?
Stay connected with JESUS, also called the Word. He is the Way, the Life and the Truth. Be prayerful.
Have a blessed new day.
Be merciful, kind and compassionate to one another.
Father, please give me the grace to praise you no matter what I am passing through in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Thank you Jesus for giving me the grace to keep my focus on you.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
