24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
Today’s Inspiration: We can only be justified by works and not by faith only. James 2:24. Just as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead. V26.
If you are going through trials, God maybe testing your patience through faith. Job persevered despite severe trials. His losses were intense beyond what a man could bear. But mercy triumphs over judgement. Ultimately God shows his compassion and mercy and blessed him twice more than his losses. James 2:13, 5:11. All who persevered in endurance are considered blessed. All those who came to Jesus who have faith in His healing and believed have their desires fulfilled. Matthew 15.28.
Wishing all fathers a blessed and joyous Father’s day. May I bless you with joy and gladness and may you be a good father and husband like Elkanah the husband of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1. He loved God above all else and loved Hannah dearly even at a time when she was barren.
Proverbs 18:23 He who finds a wife finds a good thing and finds favour from the Lord. He functions corporately with Hannah to build a strong family whilst at the same time perform priestly functions in the home. Meditate on 1 Samuel 1.
Have a blessed celebration of praise today.
