Proverbs 2:15-18 – Wisdom Is From God Pt 4

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edge sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow; and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

James 1:2-3 – Count It All Joy

I believe, when testing moments come, count it all joy is trusting The Lord, in spite of what we don’t see.

It’s remembering his faithfulness and timing. It’s praising him through the good and bad times.

It’s patiently believing in him.

Scripture reference:

Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

whom having not seen, ye love, in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1 Peter 1:6-9
