Bro George opened to James 1:1-12, “Winning the Battles We Face”. How to turn life’s trials into life’s triumphs. Battles come or way and we must win them. To start we must have as attitude that is joyful. God wants to move us out of our comfort zone to a character that can face battles. From material to physical to spiritual. From bitter to better.
We must have a mind that is understanding. God wants to mellow us to know it is for our betterment. God wants to mature us. We must have a will that is surrendered. God wants to mature us. The work he does for us is salvation. Only he can do it. The work he does in us is sanctification. The work he does through us is service. We have an eternity to praise him but right now is our opportunity to serve.
We must have a heart that is believing. God wants to make us wise. Wisdom is required. Use a real eye to look at matters. It is required but how often is it requested?? Ask of God and it shall be given. Wisdom is received but not refused. Determined by indecision. Don’t have a divided loyalty. Have you trusted Him today? Are you more like Him?
