Testing Your Faith
2Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,a whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
12Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
During our training for my coffee company today our CEO, Jay Noland, quoted the above verses and related it to our business but it hit me like a ton of bricks. It’s so true. We are called to trust God in all things, good and bad. We are to believe in Him and trust, NOT doubt. Ask God for the wisdom to get you through this journey and trust that He will give you what’s best for you. Give thanks in all things and find the joy in the journey.
