I don’t know anyone who likes this. Trials and troubles aren’t joy producing, at least not for me. What James is telling us is that instead of reacting to the problems and hard times with anger, worry or despair - remember that it’s just making you a stronger disciple and can increase your faith. You need faith, and sometimes you need to persevere through something to get to the next level. This is true in nature just like it’s true for people.
Learning to face the worries and cares of this world with faith rather than fear isn’t just important it’s empowering. #justdoit #discipleship #dontworry #faith #walkinthespirit #shalom #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional
