James 1:4 “Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” NIV

James tells us that through trials and temptations we should not try to find the easy way out, but to remain steadfast in the Lord who if we ask in faith will provide the strength we need to persevere through whatever is troubling us. The message breaks it down nicely.

James 1:4 “So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.”

    You hit a sore spot with that one, Jerad! Thanks for the encouragement and pointed words. I needed to hear them. It’s so easy to run away from temptations instead of facing them in the faith that God will overcome.
    Peace to you.

    God will not give us more than we can handle. He is our protector and He will provide for us. We must do our job and stay faithful to Him and face what comes our way and be strong. Jesus was sent to Earth to show us that it is possible. Yes, we may fall short from time to time, but He knows us and loves us anyway. Thank you Lord. Praise be to God.
    Thank you for your message to all. Love you, Mom
