What is God up to?
Hi everyone, Happy December!! Have you ever faced a situation that made you wonder seriously: What is God up to? James 1:12-18 has some very instructive thoughts that will help us endure trials: 'Let no one say...."I am tempted by God" ; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone." So we may ask: God why are you allowing me to go through this never-ending battle or to have to deal with that person? First, Beware of your own desires that entice and lead to deception and sin vs.14. Second, Be - aware of who God is: The giver of every good and perfect gift, the Father of lights who doesn't change vs.17. Like Job, God may ask the devil to 'consider' you (Job 1:8) and allow him to send a storm or temptation to disturb your peace, but take heart, God heals and restores with His 'good and perfect gifts' and promises those who endure temptation 'will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love him.' vs.12. So cheer up and bear up!
