My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
Today we are looking at how God seeks to bring us to maturity by building patience into our lives. If there is one thing I have learned in my Christian walk, it is that God is not in as much of a hurry as we are.
Patience is the long-lasting quality of our faith.
If we let go of our patience, our faith falls to the floor
The end result God is looking for is that we may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
The word perfect here means mature.
God is developing maturity in us by working on our patience.
Sometimes in life, we set out to embark on projects thinking we are working or building for God and yet we encounter tough and rough unimaginable circumstances.
Whatever we sought to build would be built, and as everyone sees a building, God sees something different; He sees character through the things He allowed us to go through.
Instead of us thinking we built the building, we should say the building built us.
- Going through those trials,
- facing those difficulties,
- having our faith tested,
- having to trust God when there was a lack of finances,
- Having to trust God in health-related issues,
- having to hold onto God’s Word when we become a laughing stock with some people, all of that build character in us as we stand the test.
I have a question for you:
Has anything been building you lately? If so, rejoice, because God is working maturity in you!
Lord give me the grace and the heart to go through my present challenges as I mature in you.

Oh Lord! All my Days and years are insured in your name. Do with my life what no man can do and bless me to the point where those who hear of it can’t believe it is true. In Jesus’ Name I pray!
