Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. JAMES 1:2-4. We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. JAMES 5:11.

Yesterday was not a good day for me, I found myself descending into deep fatigue. It is a regular occurrence due to my health issues, I just need to roll with it and rest until it passes. In these occasions I can do very little, I rely on prayer and the goodness of God. This morning is like a new day, praise the Lord!

These are lessons which many folk encounter in life. Trials come in many shapes and forms. A man who knew about trials was Job, who lived around 2000BC. He was possibly a contemporary of Isaac. Job was a wealthy man and a man of God. He was righteous, feared God and turned his back on evil. But in tragic circumstances Job lost everything he owned, but he did not lose his faith in God. He endured the trials as God’s will and glorified the Almighty, regardless of the circumstances.

Praising God is easy when all is well, but when the storm clouds gather in our life it is a different matter. The good news is that our trials are temporary events, testing our faith in God. When we endure and stand firm our Father God will bless us richly. These are good reasons to rest in Him, praising Him regardless of events. The storm will pass, the sun will rise in the morning.

    1. God bless you David, thank you brother. I am sure I have heard that song on a Gaither album, I will need to hunt it down now. Yesterday and today are like night and day, praise God. I am rejuvenated and ready to get to work on what I missed yesterday. God is Good!😁🙏
