Friday 1/12 ~ You are where God wants you

The scripture for today, January 12, is James 1:12 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

00-LUKE-KINDLE Cover-Thumbnail“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

How loyal are you to God? Is your relationship up and down, depending on how your life is going at the moment? If you pray for something and don’t get it, do you feel like God is punishing you?  If everything seems to be going wrong, do you blame God instead of Satan? Do you pray over and over for God to relieve you of a particular burden, but relief hasn’t come?

God has assignments for you. Where you are today is where he wants you. Your job is to stay loyal no matter how difficult things get.

Why? To prove that love is stronger than hatred. To prove that good is stronger than bad. To prove that God is stronger than Satan. Ephesians 6:12 says Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Determine today to thank God for whatever state you are in. And, even though you may feel helpless to do anything about it right now, in your helplessness, persevere!

One thought on “Friday 1/12 ~ You are where God wants you

  1. Diane Rohlinger

    Are not our trials and tests ways our Father in Heaven is showing us how to help someone else with the same pain? Won’t we be so much better prepared to help someone with a problem if we have had our wounds bound and healed by our Father? I for one am glad to now know that reason because it makes me feel much better about my trials when I think of them as school to teach me how to help someone else.
