PERSEVERE UNTIL THE END
What the world judges as an affliction, you child of God, are to count as Joy (James 1:2). This is because while the worldly person looks with a veiled heart and mind, the Child of God sees clearly, with eyes of the Spirit.
Trials and afflictions are to produce patience, perseverance, endurance, character, and most of all hope in God’s promises (Romans 5:3,4). James 5:11 encourages Believers to look at Job. He went through the most horrendous trials and God made sure it was recorded for future generations to see. What happened to Job was no fairy tale, it was real!
One of the greatest testimonies of God’s “compassion” and “mercy” is seen in the life of Job. The greater the trial, the greater the testimony. In all the attacks and persecutions, Job’s FAITH remained intact. Worldly wealth can be replaced, health, honour and dignity can be restored, but a heart of unbelief is finished. If the enemy can shift your Faith in Christ, he’s got you…
Job was patient, he submitted to God in all his trials, you should also. Ask God to increase your Faith. God knows your frailties and weaknesses… He will never give you more than you can bear ( 1 Corinthians 10:13). There is enough grace at God’s throne to see you through that trial and situation (Heb. 4:16). God grace is sufficient for you and His strength is made perfect in your weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9) Amen. Encourage someone with this message today: Share it.
