Success (Part 5)
We hear a lot about success in today’s world, not only from the secular world but also from the church world. Everybody wants to have success in their lives at some level, the definition of that success may vary but rarely do you find people who don’t want or like to succeed. The Bible is full of different successes through the ages. In this series of messages, we are going to look at several different accounts in Scripture where individuals and groups followed the Lord and achieved success. These accounts were written for our example, as we follow the faith that others demonstrated we will see success in our lives as well. All things are possible with God and all things are possible with the one who believes. SUCCESS!
Part 5 – James 1:2 – Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Here we have a powerful truth given by James from the Holy Spirit, a key to success in our lives. The Lord knew that you and I would not feel joy in trials so He gave us a truth that releases His ability into our situation. Responding in faith with joy to our trials brings deliverance and causes spiritual growth in our lives. When you have done all you can to stand, stand, therefore!
