“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.” James 1:2-4 NLT
One of the ways that you will be tested is to have your faith challenged. Do you really believe what you profess? Is God all that you believe Him to be?
When you stand firm in your faith in the midst of difficulties your roots grow deeper into Christ. You are tapping into resources that strengthen your ability to endure and provide an opportunity to experience His joy and peace.
“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” Ephesians 3:16-17 NLT
Be empowered by the love of Christ today.
