Endurance

James 5:11 (NKJV)

11 Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord–that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful. 

Are there times you are in a struggle and feel you cannot endure?  Do you know of someone who has had obstacle after obstacle to be in their journey?  James gives us encouraging words in this passage.  We are blessed who endure and there are times we forget this or question it.  God shows us in His Word how He loved Job.  Job had many questions for God yet He continued to trust and love God.

God is always there for us and loves us.  He is compassionate and merciful.  There are times we question Him and we do need to seek Him.  Seek Him in prayer and in the Word to see what He is trying to show you.  We see throughout the Bible all that the people endured and it was always God loving them through the struggle.  Never allow the struggle in life to create strife in your relationship with Jesus.  He is there for you and showed us His example of endurance.

So always know God loves you and seek Him, find Him, know His love and seek to see what He wants to show you.  When you seek Him you will find His mercy, grace and love.
