rise above trials

recently, i've been listening to radio station 107FM every weekday night... at about 10.30pm, a short sharing will be broadcast by Trinity Christian Church pastors... it's really good and not very "heavy" or informative...

(from here onwards, it's not from me but from what i hear...)

today, the sharing topic is:

Raising Above the Trials of Your Life

in the book of James 1:2-4, it read

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

notice that the bible did not mention "...if you face trials..." but "...whenever you face trials..." it proves that no one escape from trials. and face means fall into... moreover, trials come unexpectedly.

2 winning mindset:

1) understand your faith can grow when you face trials
in any trials you face, faith is tested.

2) character will grow through trials.
perseverance is developed when faced trials. it has to be done so that you may be mature and complete... the word "mature" is used... it means Spiritual adulthood. God wants us to be like Him. it is His desire.

in conclusion, we cannot control the trials that came and are coming but we can control our choices... so let us all rise above trials and perserver in God... He will be always faithful...
