Perseverance

December 15 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

Scripture
2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
Observation
James write that perseverance through trials is key to maturity, and as we go about doing so let us find joy in it . if we are lacking with wisdom to do right from wrong lets pray, asking the lord to help realign us in ways HE see fit . when praying let our faith be stern and not double minded because once doubt sets in it will not only affect that decision you make but doubt will set hold in all you do UNSTABLED
Application
As i go on learning and growing in god i think everything will be better no worries in world, birds singing in the trees and me with no Care's in the world can go about my business.the day when i find out that there is consequences and being blinded and naive is sign's of immaturity is the day i grew-up. now i have came to a realisation that the lord puts trials in my life not to hurt me but to make me stronger, in my struggle's is where i found Thee, Perseverance is the cost, Making you proud of me priceless.
Prayer
Father thank you for helping me through the testing and trials, thank you for comforting me through it all. i pray that i keep a stern mind in the decision i make , so doubt can't set in in all this i pray AMEN.
