James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which The Lord hath promised to them that love him. ~ Hallelujah, every temptation, every season of resistance has an end! Our lives are bigger than our moments. What the enemy meant for evil and for destruction, God can turn it around for your good. It’s during the enduring process that we are fortified and made stronger IF we will hold fast to our faith and handle the season we are in according to the word of God.
We know that if a man loves God, he will keep his commandments. God’s commandments govern us and instructs us on how to live the life of faith and how to walk in victory in this world. When we live according to his Word, at the end of the season, at the end of the temptation, we will win victories and be crowned with the crown of life. This crown of life is not only a reward that we receive in heaven, but it brings us into places of dominion, power, and authority that we can walk in here on earth. Our light afflictions which are only for a moment do not compare to the glory that will be revealed in us. Let’s be a people who believe the word and stay the course.
