THE GOOD NEWS: My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. (James 1:2-3*NKJV) We all have times in our lives when our patience and our endurance seem to be running low. Times that we may even think that we can't take it anymore. When that happens to you remember that our Heavenly Father is a; God of patience and comfort (Romans 15:5) He is always there for us, and will lead us out of our problems if we practice patience. Now we learn by reading the Scriptures that patience is a Virtue. For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. (Romans 15:4) Further by learning about how God has handled things in the past gives us knowledge of how He will handle the future as well. Remember the story of Job and how he endured? The Bible tells us; Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. (James 5:11) So never give up, but; wait patiently and be sure; that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Hebrews 6:12) Therefore May the Lord direct your heart into the love of God and into the patience of Christ. (2 Thes 3:5) and; let patience have its perfect work, that you may
be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:4) Go in peace and Amen!
If God is for us, who can be against us?
God is bringing us together-Romans 8:31
