Is this a trying and testing time for you right now?
The book of James in the Bible gives us a key to enduring testing and temptation… that key is to endure with patience.
It’s hard to be patient while going through testing and temptation. You want to be out of it already!! You want to get to the testimony part. You want to get thought it quickly not patiently. The tempo of patience feels slow.
Patient means – able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.
These are challenging times but nothing has taken God by surprise. Let’s keep our hope up and our trust in Him. He’s got us. Let’s be patient through every test and temptation and we will receive every promise from God.
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12 NLT
