JAMES

PERSEVERE THROUGH TRIALS

LETTER FROM JAMES

TO THE CHURCH AND THE PERSECUTED ONE’S

FOR STRENGTH AND ENCOURAGEMENT

James 1: 12-15

12. Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

13. When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone.
14. but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
15. then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

 

INSIGHT REFLECTIONS

Do you feel as if something strange is going on? Are you undergoing varies trials, and fires? Do you feel overwhelmed and ready to throw in the towel ?

WAIT! You are not the only one, there are many like you who are undergoing varies trials, just like you. HOLD ON! REMAIN steadfast! Something beautiful is going on, though it may not look like it, it is!

James plainly says, Blessed is the one who perseveres under trials!

To persevere is to persist in, or remain constant to a purpose, idea, or task, in the face of obstacles or discouragement.

Trials make us who we are today. We are tested constantly, in our abilities and strength, to determine what is lacking, and what is valuable in us. As we remain strong through those trials, we shall be Victorious, lacking nothing. When we finish this race faithfully, the Lord promises us the crown of life!

A CROWN OF THORNS, FOR A CROWN OF GLORY 

How beautiful is that crown? I bet it will be the most beautiful crown we have ever seen, the beauty of heaven in itself will be overwhelming. I pray we all finish this race and over come every trial, realizing that these trials are necessary for our growth.

God NEVER temps us ever! For God cannot be tempted, nor does he tempt anyone. We are tempted when WE follow our fleshly desires . We must DIE to our flesh DAILY and keep in submission, and walk in humility.

How do we do that?

By reading the word EVERY DAY and staying close to God, this kills our fleshy desires and we take on God’s desires for us.

If we give into our flesh it produces sin, and sin gives birth to death. Physical death you ask? I don’t know but I do know that when we sin we open the door to Satan to destroy us and he ONLY comes to steal, KILL and destroy.
Are you letting certain sin overtake you?

If so, God is waiting for you to repent and turn back to him, and live righteously.

Submit to God, that sin shall flee from you
God Always has the best for us! 

 

PRAYER

Lord help us overcome our flesh, as we read your word, hide your word in our hearts, to not sin against you, clothe us with the Armor of God at all times. When we are weak carry us. In Jesus name I pray AMEN!
