Rule It All Joy!

"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).

The exercising and application of God’s Word in a believer’s life produces a heavenly wisdom and comprehension that transcends this earthly realm. .
There Are No Short Cuts

Many try to manufacture and produce the heavenly joy and experiential wisdom by earthy carnal means, but the end results of these are the eventually collapse and shipwreck of the child of Almighty God on the rocks of unbelief (Matt 7:26-27, 1 Tim 1:19, Heb. 4:2, James 1:22).

Only when the mind of the child of God is absolutely fixed (Is 26:3) and locked onto Almighty God’s never changing Word - by faith with application - will the child of God enter into a realm of spiritual treasure and knowledge that transcends the confinements of time (Prov 4:7, Rom. 11:3, Col 2:2-3, 1 Peter 1:7). It is only when Almighty God’s Word is applied and exercised in the life of the child of God that spiritual growth will take place (John 15). It does not come cheap and is well worth the price (1 Peter 1:7).

What ever you are going through today; take this opportunity to trust Almighty God and apply His Word in your life by faith and watch what God will do for you. He will enlarge your mind and heart. He give you a heavenly vision that will help you comprehend and know in your heart that Heaven is our home and that God truly loves you and wants only the highest and best for you (Rom 8:28). The world will see that in deed Christ in you is wise and their famished soul will desire the wonderful fruits of the Spirit in your life (Matt 5:16, Luke 8:8, Gal 5:22-23).

My Beloved, bring along your notebook and pencil and pay close attention to what Almighty God is seeking to teach you. Have faith in God with great thanksgiving! You will never be the same! Never!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
