"My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptations, knowing that the trying of your faith develops patience. But let patience perfect its work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." James 1:2-4.
As Christians we often lose sight of the value of our faith and the precious thing that it is to God. Our heavenly father never loses sight of how valuable and precious faith is and because He sees the value of faith He allows it to be tried. He allows it to be tested. God allows the circumstances in our life to be raised until what we are in the midst of looks like a fire and we often think it is going to be the end of us but when coming out of the trial we then realize what God has done and that is he has made our faith in him even more pure and now there is less doubting involved in it and not only that but he has made our faith in him even stronger than what it was. That is what God is doing in the seasons of trials in our life. God is refining our faith. And when in the midst of these trials we need to keep moving forward, we need to continue being patient in these trials so that patients will have its perfect work. In other words patients is continuing to walk with God through the seasons in our life, patients allows the trial to have it's complete work and when the trial has its complete work it will make us at the end to be perfect and complete lacking nothing. He is talking about spiritual character here. God brings us through the trials and the difficulties so that as he gives us the grace to continue to walk with him no matter how difficult the trial is, it is in order that he might develop Christ likeness in our life and develop godly character in our life. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
