Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. – James 1:2-4
Brought out in the post “Equipped for Battle” was that the impatience of Saul resulted in the downfall of his kingdom. Patience can achieve more than our own determined effort. Wait for God, seek Him constantly, be determined to keep His plan, and obey His commands. Rely on the armor of God for safety and follow God’s plan to take on the challenges ahead.
Like the song Keep Making Me by Sidewalk Prophets, the Lord will keep making you ready. When you think you’re finished, get help from the Spirit because with the Spirit, there is no limit. Keep on fighting and hope will keep rising.
