Profiting From Trials


My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

James 1:2-8

  2. I like that james 1 verse and couple it with luke 12:30-32 and we see we can ask for wisdom and all the things of the kingdom with the eternal things firstmost, wisdom will remain with us forever and we can get more, love, joy, peace, faithfulness patience..all them and the more of them will remain in and with us for all eternity=what amazing value they have! as we seek the Lord and the eternal things of the kingdom first.

    ..who gives liberally and without reproach, it’s the Fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom..your tribulations and poverty, but you are rich! (rev 2:9)
