What does God want most for you?
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations, knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:2-4
What does God want most for you? To experience the fullness of Christ. So what does He want fromyou? The only way to experience the fullness of Christ is through trials and tribulations. But can you be patient during this process? That’s the key. If you’re like most people, probably not. We become like children who don’t know the difference between “No” and “Not yet.” If you say, “Wait a while,” to them that is, “No.” They want it now. But God is interested in maturing you.
A Danish proverb says, “Give to a pig when it grunts and give to a child when it cries, and you will have a fine pig and a bad child.” Tribulation brings patience, and patience makes us mature.
What are you waiting for? What are you struggling with? Give it to Jesus. Trust in His timing and His provision.
