Faith and Endurance
v.2 When trouble comes your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy
v.3 When your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow
God never sends us challenges that we can’t over come through Him. It is also a chance for God to show His glory in your life. It is your chance to become a living testimony, the best way to glorify God in your life.
v. 5 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God.
He gives us necessary tools like His word and prayer. That is why it is important to arm yourself with God’s word at all times. If you don’t know His word, you won’t know His promises.
v. 6 But when you ask Him, be sure that your faith is in God alone.
Faith in God is necessary to overcome anything. If you don’t believe your God is bigger than your problem, then it will overcome you instead.
Do not have faith in fait but have faith in God alone.
v. 12 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.
God has better things in store for you. Those challenges allow you to grow so that you will be ready to handle blessings that come with bigger responsibilities.
