Bible Verse of the Day – Count It All As Joy When You Meet Trials and Tribulations, James 1:2-4 (New Testament)

18 Sep

Count it all as joy when you meet trails and tribulations (James 1:2-4).

An absolutely amazing photo. Joy comes from the heart, not from external circumstances.

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” – James 1:2-4

This is a truly amazing verse. It really boggles the mind when you think about how opposed to the natural order of things it is. Trials and Tribulations do not bring one joy, in the world. They bring suffering, complaining, bitching, if you will.

That is not how God would have us see things. Quite the opposite in fact. And that is what true maturity is.
