James 1:3-4. 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.
Thought for the Day: The Temptation You Are Facing Has Been Sent To Strengthen You
Reflection for the Day: Rejoice For God Is In Control
Temptation is a part of everyone's life; the key is how one responds. James exhorts us to demonstrate patience as a statement of our trust in the Lord. He goes as far as to tell us to count it all joy when the temptations come, recognizing they are sent to develop our faith. As you wait, rejoice knowing that God is in control.
There is no situation that God can not control. As you face the various temptations that life brings, learn to use them to develop your faith. As you wait for the Lord to direct your steps, you will discover that He will meet all of your needs. He is using the situation to make you perfect, entire, and wanting nothing.
