My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance; and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you is lacking in wisdom, ask God, who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and it will be given you. But ask in faith, never doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind; for the doubter, being double-minded and unstable in every way, must not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Let the believer who is lowly boast in being raised up, and the rich in being brought low, because the rich will disappear like a flower in the field. For the sun rises with its scorching heat and withers the field; its flower falls, and its beauty perishes. It is the same way with the rich; in the midst of a busy life, they will wither away. (James 1:2-11, NRSV)
If you lack anything ask God for it and He will provide it for you. Now He may not give it to you. If you ask for patience He may put you in a situation where you need to be patient…
And that is where testing your faith comes in and endurance is produced. And as the picture says, “Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing but to turn it into Glory.”
Endurance leads to God being glorified in our lives, and He is always with you!
