Receive with great joy, my brethren, when you fall into various temptations

“Receive with great joy, my brethren, when you fall into various temptations, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience; patience must have a perfect effect, so that you are perfect in its entirety, without any lack. ” James 1: 2-4

Dear friends, blessed day full of wisdom and patience!

Scripture warns us that there will be trials in life and this is not bad. This is very good, it is good for our soul, for the improvement of our good beginning and the victory over the evil that is hidden in our heart!
And in this battle, joy and unceasing thanksgiving will help us.

God is always close to His child and the child’s heart is connected with Him, and if a child observes the commandments and obeys the orders of the Heavenly Father, then he conquers all difficulties and overcomes all obstacles. But if sin is in the life of a child of God and it prevails, and the child’s heart turns away from the Word of God, then a high barrier appears between him and God, and the child is to blame for this, not God.

We are all children of God, and God is with us constantly. All the events of our life are under the control of the Lord, and our part is that we are not afraid of trials, that we do not shut ourselves up and grumble at fate, but with gratitude open our hearts to God and have fellowship with believers and with spiritual mentors!

Going through all the difficulties, you become patient and self-controlled!
Your prayer of thanksgiving is very pleasing to the Lord, and with this prayer you raise yourself up and destroy barriers, and drive away the enemy of your soul!

And know that your victory builds and heals those who are near you and those for whom you are praying!
Just do not be discouraged and do not despair, believe me, it will not always be so!
Everything will change for the better!

Stay in the Heavenly Father’s shalom!
