James 1:12-18

Trials are tough and painful, but it is possible to persevere in your trials according to James. There are some important truths you need to remember in the midst of your trial. First, James wanted you to know that God will not tempt you ever, but your own desires will tempt you. Second, you need to remember you have a heavenly Father who is making every good and perfect gift available for you in your trial. Finally, your Father does not change, but is always there for you no matter what is going on in your life. My prayer is that you will remember the words of James in your next trial so that you may persevere and be blessed!
