Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that you may be [people] perfectly and fully developed [with no defects], lacking in nothing.” ‭‭James‬ ‭1:2-4‬ ‭AMPC‬

God uses our trial not only to give birth to fruits of faithfulness. The fruits of faithfulness are the fruits of the Spirit. This fruits only manifest as we desire or pursue relationship with God, not the things He does for us, but who He is as a person.

But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness,” ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:22‬ ‭AMPC‬

It’s through these fruits that God uses to establish us in His plans and purpose for our lives. This fruits are what conforms us to the image of Christ.

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.” ‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:10‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

May all your affliction or trials causes God to establish you in His plan and purpose for your life in Jesus name.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Thank You for establishing me through the trials in my life by The Mighty working of Your spirit within me in Jesus name. Amen
