"Persevering Under Trial!"

“Persevering Under Trial!”

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12

We truly are living in PERILOUS times, especially for the TRUE BELIEVER. We are being forced to accommodate things that are contradictory to our beliefs. And many are or will be facing TRIALS that will surely TEST their FAITH.

It will take STEADFASTNESS and TRUST to overcome these TRIALS. Our FAITH will, in some cases be tested to the limits. And we MUST PERSEVERE, because of the STRONG, INTENSE, LOVE we have for our Father God, who will see us through the TRIAL, which will produce in us a HOLY RIGHTEOUSNESS that can ONLY come from Him.

He will give us WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING concerning the TRIALS we encounter, if we will but ask of Him. James says that the person who withstands the TEST will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised those who love Him.

This crown is a reward for PERSEVERING UNDER TRIAL, it is like a race, where the runner is VICTORIOUS in running the race according to all the rules, and overcoming the obstacles that they encounter along the way. And when they finish the race they receive their REWARD or CROWN.

We too, are running a race and will encounter different things that will or could be a threat to the outcome of our race. The question is: Will we be VICTORIOUS and receive the crown of life, because of the STRONG, INTENSE, LOVE that we have for our Lord God? Or will we cave in and give up because of a WEAK, PUNY, relationship that we have with Him. We NEED to be STRONG, and STEADFAST in our FAITH and TRUST in God to see us through our TRIALS and TESTS. We do that by having a HEALTHY relationship with Him. That means spending some QUALITY TIME with Him EVERYDAY. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God then you are LOST, and probably facing these PERILOUS times, which will get worse as the time passes, ALONE. You will be a loser in the race, and will NOT receive a reward, the CROWN of LIFE, but instead you will receive condemnation and be sentenced to an ETERNITY in Hell, the place of eternal torment, torture, pain and agony. However, God is giving you the opportunity to turn from your sinful lifestyle, and to come to Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART and CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a WINNER and an OVERCOMER, by PERSEVERING UNDER TRIAL, and receive your crown of life. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
