What we allow to Hinder Us

James 1: 2-4 says “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Many things in  life can and will hinder a persons walk with God. James tells us to count it all joy when we meet trails and testings. You might be saying to yourself how can or why would I want to count it joy when my life is in total chaos? It’s that type of thinking that we do that hinders our blessing.

Understand the trails and testing that you and I go through does not last for eternity, they are only here for a moment, but because of how it affects us it appears as though it’s been with us for a long time. It’s like a hungry person stopping at a burger place to get something to eat and because your waiting two (2) minutes in line it will seem like five (5) minutes, why because you are hungry and it is hindering you from eating.

When you and I stand fast and hold on to what is true and praise God in our storms it will take your mind off of what you see and God will elevate you. Now those storms and challenges are now under your feet for you have rose above them.

Don’t let the affairs of today hinder you in any way.
