“Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace].” (James 1: 2-3, Amplified Bible)

Don’t let the challenges of life cause you to feel you are failing or losing. Trials will come to everyone in human experience. These are occasions to put into practice what we are learning of God and to gain an even greater understanding.

And this heightened awareness of God in all circumstances, and turning to Him for solutions, reveals strength and patience and maturity in us. As we are humbled to listen and lean on God’s Love, to give up personal control and ego, and to be led into fresh views and renewed opportunities, we are indeed winning.

It is our joy, in fact, to gain through overcoming. For not only can we say truthfully that we have had a victory, have beat the enemy back through our endurance and wisdom; but we also through each testing become more practiced at recognizing the lie when it comes to tempt us into its trap, and demonstrating the Truth that defeats it.

The added bonus is that we gain a greater view of God’s presence and power and know exactly why it is the solution to all. Divine Love is fully appreciated, not taken for granted. We know the value of what we have, and we are less willing to forget it in times of trouble and even in times of peace and joy.
