Music Devotion by Mick Pagel

James 1:2-4
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. 

There are many evidences in scripture that show us life (and the Christian life, in particular) on this earth will never be easy. James encourages us to not only expect trials but to prepare our hearts to face those trials with joy. This not only helps us through trials but produces further endurance and sanctifies us. God is so gracious to take the difficulties and pains in this life and use them for our conformity to His Son and His own glorification. All glory to Him!

By Faith
It Is Well With My Soul
Before the Throne
Out of the Depths
