“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1: 2-4
“…so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold, which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:7
“so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” Hebrews 6:12
“By your endurance, you will gain your lives.” Luke 21:19
In life, there are many transitions. Some life-altering moments or life changes are easier than others. While I encounter various trials, I know the testing of my faith produces endurance.
I need Your guidance, comfort, and strength so I may endure the initial stages of the upcoming transition. My faith will be tested, I know.
I will praise and honor You as I adapt to my new lifestyle.
It is so exciting to have your rest. You are right there watching it all and protecting me from any given evil schemes. My desire is to display Your fragrance as I walk into challenging circumstances today.
I’m trusting in You alone, my Rescuer and Refuge.
In Jesus’ name, I courageously pray. Amen.
