The Winans – Count it all Joy
2My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
All joy means everything, not some of the things we endure but all things should be looked at as an opportunity to glorify our heavenly Father!
Those very things that seem to frustrate us the most are the things we learn our greatest lessons from. Sometimes we’re merely being tested as a child finishing a grade in school. If we fail we find ourselves repeating the thing we regret! How do we look at trials as joyful occasions? We just do it, by praising God no matter the situation. “Thank you Jesus” is the best solution I can personally offer you. My mother is famous for her “Thank you Jesus” amongst those that know her! No matter what you call to tell her you will hear “Thank you Jesus”! That’s what I call praise in action. It’s the best way to train yourself to praise God in any situation!
It won’t always be easy, but it is simple! Just 3 words will lead you into a life of power and victory! Patience is something every Christian must master and the bible informs us that it is mastered through being tried! The more we go through the more we’ll learn how to go through. Going through doesn’t make you weak, instead it makes us stronger! Be encouraged your trials are just the entrance to great rewards!
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
