“Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” (James 1:2)
COMMENT: Are you like me? When I first read that Scripture I couldn’t make heads nor tails out of it. When hard times come, I should be happy? Secondly, If I take the Word at face value, everyone should be in possession of great patience because trials and tribulations are integral parts of life. I now have a fuller understanding. When trials come, in the power of the Holy Spirit, we must “employ” patience and endurance. That way long-suffering will be cultivated. I think the joy comes from seeing the Fruit of the Spirit being manifested in our lives.
