Affliction Can Fuel Spiritual Lessons

Psalm 119:71 (KJB) It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.

It’s true, affliction can carry great spiritual benefits.  Though it may not seem as so in the middle of difficulty, affliction can grow and mature a soul.  Trials and tribulations can benefit the child of God by producing greater Christlikeness and character in our life.

Some Days Our Boat Rocks in the Waves of Life

 James 1:2-3 (KJB) My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

Faithless Failures Do Not Have to Be Finales but Stepping Points

1 Peter 1:7-8 (KJB)   That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:  8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.

Patience Perfects

James 1:3-4 (KJB)   Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Patience is not one of my strong suits.  In fact, I can be downright impatient and even exasperated at times.

What about you?

It is a constant battle to remind myself that God desires to try my faith as well as strengthen my patience.  If I let myself become frustrated ...

God is The Source

Job 28:28 (KJB)   And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Job clearly understood that God is the source of all things.

God is the continual flowing spout of spiritual wisdom and understanding.  Job could speak of this through a personal understanding.  He faced many trials and troubles.  Job not only understood “having it all”, he understood losing everything.  Job lost his family, his ...

His Grace is Sufficient

“For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”  ...
