Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace]. And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing. James 1: 2-4
God’s Word for your life is your seed, and your faith is the fertilizer. God’s intentional will for your life will come to past once you begin to apply your faith. You can begin to execute this victorious life by living in a deep reliance on God through the understanding of His Word. Often time’s people believe that if you are a Believer you should never be in want or need for anything; that the life of a Believer is prefect. But, I have come to tell you that that misconceived notion is far from the truth. In fact I will go as far as to say; because you are a Believer you will be tried and tested in almost every area of your life. But, it is then as a Believer that you should begin to apply your faith. So today I ask that you would begin to view the locust in your garden differently as you apply your faith to eliminate them. But don’t forget to praise God in the midst of Him exterminating the locust out of your garden, as you begin to apply your faith.
Enter into Prayer
Father as circumstances begins to arise in my life I ask that You would cover me with Your Holy Spirit; so that I will remain steadfast under any trials and persevere when tempted. And, once I have passed the test and showed myself approved, I will receive the victor’s crown of life that You have promised Your children who love You. I ask these things and all other things in Your Son Jesus name, Amen and Amen!
