James 1:2-3

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.”‭‭James‬ ‭1:2-3‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

We need to have a right understanding and right perspective of trials. Trials are essential for our growth in Christ. It is through trials that our faith is tested and it grows mature. As we face trials and stand fast in the Lord our faith grows deep roots that will not be shaken. 

Some desire to run from trials or pray that God would remove them, but like the apostle Paul and the thorn in the flesh we must understand that God’s grace is sufficient for all things. In all that we face the Lord will lead us through and we must embrace the trials that come our way. In due time we will grow to a place of maturity and become a vessel and dwelling place of God’s glory.
