“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the TESTING of your faith produces PERSEVERANCE.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be MATURE and COMPLETE, not lacking anything.” —James 1:2-4 You cannot reach your full God-given potential without the growing pains. That is why you should ask God: “Lord, what are you trying to teach me in this season? How can this trial help TRANSFORM me to be more like you?” “If any of you lacks wisdom you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” —James 1:5 When you ask, ask as though you really BELIEVE He will give you this wisdom. Never doubt His generosity and His PROMISES. “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind” —James 1:6
