8/5/14 Daily Devotion

James 1:3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.

The time spent considering an upcoming test, any test, is certainly not time well spent, but that’s a familiar place for most people. Have you ever heard very many people say, “A test, awesome!” Or ” I was hoping we could have a test today.” Most people prefer not to be tested, but that is certainly one aspect of life that cannot be removed. Testing can be found in all aspects of our lives, including our faith. And while it can be difficult, it has a purpose. The tests that we travel through as Christians help gauge the level of our faith. They help determine how much we really trust in God. James says the testing of our faith develops perseverance, and perseverance helps make our walk through the next test easier.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become stronger through adversity and more focused through testing.
