“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.” (James 1:12)
Today’s Morsel: It has been stated, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed." How many obstacles have you had to overcome to get where you are today? The children of Israel had to wander 40 years in the wilderness before they were able to go into the promised land. James states that the man that endures temptation when he is tried, shall receive a crown of life, which God has promised to all of them that love Him. To reach success it requires ‘u’. If we are not successful in life, or we do not reach success, then it’s because we could not overcome the obstacles in our way and things impede us from reaching our goal. Keep striving to overcome and receive the promises God has given you.
Sing: You’re going to make it, you’re going to make it, you’ve got what it takes to win. And I know that you’re going to make it. I know you are going to make it; just as long as you and Jesus stay friends.
Thought For Today: Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.
