Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one.
James 1:12-13 (ESV)
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
When you’re tempted to give up, to lash out, to sink in, remember these verses. God pulls for you to remain standing. He’s your biggest supporter and would never trip you up.
And when the trial is over and you’ve made it through, know there will be a reward. God promises so.
I know You are never the one behind my temptations. I want to stand the test for You. Thank You for blessing me with rewards when I do.
This week Plan A and Plan B groups are both memorizing James 1:12 (also vs 13 for Plan A). We’d love to hear from either group—how is your memorizing going? Please share in the comments. Next week is a break for everyone!
