Verse of the Day ~ James 1:12

Verse of the day

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
James 1:12

Our verse of the day reminds us that if we hang on to our love for the Lord, He will give us the crown of life. Even when trials come, we can remain steadfast because the Spirit of God indwells our hearts and is our strength.

I love that another word for blessed is happy in the Greek language. So if we look at it that we are happy when we remain strong (steadfast) under trials, God will give us the crown of life.  We stood the test, and we passed.  We trusted God even when things looked bleak.  Even when enemies swarmed our peace, we trusted Him. We can do this because we have the Spirit of God, not the spirit of defeat.

Hang on dear friends!
