James 1:2-3 (NIV)
Trials and Temptations
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
*God is not testing your faith...The enemy puts things out there to see how you will react. Our reaction is evidence of where our faith is...Developing perseverance deals with staying rooted and grounded in God, and giving the enemy push back to let him know he won't win. Also, you hold the power within to do the opposite of what the enemy is telling you to do. So, regardless of the situation, let's focus on God's possibilities and not transfer the focus to the enemy's poor efforts to knock you off your square. I choose to find joy, even if it's just God and me. What do you choose?
