I Recieve the Crown of Life!
“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)
This is what you have already received as a Child of God. You have received the Crown of Life. As you live this life of faith, you are being tested and being approved by God. So, don’t give up or quit! The Lord is with you. Continue to persevere with joy and patience: “Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.” James 5:11.
You are a blessed person as you persevere and overcome trials and temptations. Because you know the Father, you can outlast any and every trial that you face. As you persevere, you will be blessed with your Father’s abundance. Don’t pay any attention to those who hate you: “And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” Matthew 10:22. When the chips are down and things don’t look so good, consider the perseverance of Job and how the Lord rewarded him. He continued to prosper when his suffering ended and the Lord gave him twice as much as before. The Lord loves you and is full of compassion towards you and your family and you have now received the Crown of Life.
