Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. – James 1:4 (NIV)
If we’re honest, we probably try to do whatever we can to avoid trials. They aren’t fun, and we’d never go through them if we had the choice.
As bad as trials sometimes seem, they can often be for our good. It’s often during uncertainty and difficulty that we really learn to fully trust in God.
Our world has been faced with difficulty lately. The pandemic has made us all unsure and searching for answers. The good news is that these difficulties we face can help us develop character, good attitudes, and draw us closer to God.
So if you’ve been upset lately because of the things you see going on in the world around you, take comfort. God loves you, He cares for you, and if you’ll get close to Him in these times, He will help you grow.
So today, choose to get close to God. Let Him develop character, good attitude and patience in you.
