"My brethren, count (rule it) it all joy when ye fall (surrounded, into a pit) into divers temptations. Knowing (experiential knowledge) this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience (endurance). But let patience (endurance) have her perfect (complete) work, that ye may be perfect (complete) and entire (whole), wanting nothing (content and ready to roll). If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed (James 1:2-6)"
One might ask, how can anyone “count it all joy” when they fall into many divers (different) testings? Ah… my friend, the fruit and spiritual wisdom that will be harvested from the adversity and testing will make the child of God to truly shout Alleluia! For at the end of your testing, the possession of the treasures of heavenly wisdom will indeed make you shout for joy! It will have been well worth your adverse journey!
Trials and tribulations here in time - in the will of Almighty God - for the child of God, will only bring us closer to our Savior (John 8:32). As these trials develop and enlarge our minds and hearts, they must be looked at from ETERNITY'S heavenly perspective! When we do, these trails will only broaden our heavenly vision - in the light of temporal time - with greater ETERNAL knowledge and understanding (Col. 1:9-14, 1 Peter 1:7).
The exercising and application of God’s Word in a believer’s life produces a heavenly wisdom and comprehension that transcends this earthly realm. Apart from Almighty God these riches can never be obtained by earthly means. By faith in Almighty God we access an entrance into an arena and realm that very few comprehend let alone grasp (Rom. 11:3, Col 2:2-3).
