James 1:2-4 "Whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish it's work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
Perseverance is a powerful term that is used throughout the bible. Perseverance means to not give up despite difficulty or delay in success. Is it just me or do you come back ten times harder after every set back? When life hits, it creates a stronger you. Trouble does not last always. Stay connected to God throughout the storm because God always has a plan and His plan will always prevail.
James 1:2 -"Whenever you face trials of many kinds, it is the testing your faith."
God is using trials and temptations to build your faith. God wants you to understand that His amazing grace will always save you, but you must have faith in the mist of your storm to gain wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. James 1:5 says, "If you lack wisdom you should ask God." Ask God how can you overcome the storm, ask God how can you beat the odds, ask God how can you break a generational curse . . . simply just ask God!
God has created the storm to mature you and so that He can restore you. Everyone goes through their own storm. Trust God and watch Him pull you through. Walk by faith even when you cannot see the blessing waiting on the other side. James 1:12 says, "Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
You are a fighter. Look at everything you've overcome. Don't give up now. Have faith through the storm, the sun will soon return, but for now just know - yes, with God you can you stand the rain!
