ASSISTANTS TO YOUR FAITH - JAMES 1:1-3

Share

 

There are divine assistants for faith when you are in a fight of faith. The first and greatest assistant to your faith is the Holy Ghost because He brings help for your faith. You determine the outcome you will have by your faith but the Holy Ghost helps you to get there.
 
You have the Holy Spirit to assist you to resist the devil. However, you need to first take a stand and then He will assist. When you are in His aid, He can come with guidance and strengthening for your faith. Whether it is an attack against your marriage, your health, your career or ministry you have the assistance of the person of the Holy Spirit to navigate through the challenges, but unbelievers don’t have that. 
 
James 1:2 says “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptation;” He didn’t say “it is joyful”, but “count it all joy” by knowing that the situation will turn to something good. If you don’t know that the trying of your faith will work patience, you can’t count it joy. It is your faith that is on trial, not you. God is not on trial because many times when people get into trouble, they put God on trial, but alas! He is never on trial. It is your faith that is on trial and God has given you the opportunity to prove to yourself that your faith is of the right kind. If your faith has ever worked once, it will always work. 
 

PRAYERLord, I thank You for the assistance of the Holy Spirit. Sweet Holy Spirit, take hold together with me in the battles I am fighting today in Jesus’ name.
