#113 - Redistricting Conversation w/ Paul Hurd

“My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up in you the power of endurance. And then as your endurance grows even stronger, it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking. And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and he will give it! He won’t see your lack of wisdom as an opportunity to scold you over your failures but he will overwhelm your failures with his generous grace. Just make sure you ask empowered by confident faith without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next. Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind. You’re up one minute and tossed down the next. When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition? If your faith remains strong, even while surrounded by life’s difficulties, you will continue to experience the untold blessings of God! True happiness comes as you pass the test with faith, and receive the victorious crown of life promised to every lover of God!”

This is an instruction and an encouragement for us to hold on. To keep going. To keep the faith, and keep our eyes on the Lord. James tells us to ask the Lord for what we need with full faith that He will do it. It’s our faith in the unfailing love and the faithfulness of God regardless of circumstances that pulls forward the answer. It’s our commitment to stand in faith that builds in us the endurance we need and continues to perfect us and make us more like our Savior Jesus. So if you are facing difficulties today and struggling in some part of your life. Remind yourself of the faithfulness of the Lord. He has never left you. Determine to stand on the history of your relationship with Him. Determine to stand on the Word of God and don’t back down. Don’t give way to doubt. Faith and endurance are the keys to receiving the answer you need.
