A Divine Inspiration to Praise

James 1:2-4 (NASB)
“2 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, 
3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. 
4 And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”

Please join with us in praising Jesus while experiencing:

Emotional insecurity
Financial challenge
Impossible tasks
Personal failure
Fear over the present and future

One of the principal reasons the Lord allows challenges in our lives is so that we might acquire “endurance” to live out our lives to their full potential.

I have been experiencing all of the above issues in one form or another recently.  As I’ve praised, I was impressed to ask the Body of Christ to do the same.

I believe that the Lord is birthing something in the spirit right now and His Grace will be especially present for us if we will find the place of honoring Him in spite of what we see or feel.
