Genuine And Joyful From The Inside Out

#4 - God, Wisdom And Your Problems

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
James 1:13-17
#4 in the series "James - Soundness Of Soul"

In our passage today, James takes more time than we'd like, showing us the birth place - the obstetrics - of bad responses to trials and temptations. He tells us what we should do and what we must know. Whatever else happens, nobody should allow the trials of life to make his heart go sour against God. That kind of bitterness is the incubator for all sorts of spiritual ruin. James is talking most about the things you and I tell our own heart. Or, perhaps even more accurately, he's talking about the kind of conversations we don't quickly silence or censor in our minds - "You know, God has been pretty rough on me. I don't know how He expects me to live for Him with the cards He's given me to play in life!" When you fall in temptation, don't turn a painful trial into a permanent disability. It is so easy to do and it all starts with the words you say in your own heart.
