2004-06-23 How to handle trials (problems) James 1:2-6
James 1:2-6 tells us 3 ways to handle our problems:
Rejoice!  Not for the problem, but because we know God has a purpose for the problem.
Pray for wisdom to handle the problem!  Wisdom is seeing things from God's perspective
Relax!  Believe God, trust that God will guide you through the problem and that in the process you'll become more mature and complete.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  James 1:2-6
