“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”
James 1:12 NLT
As I was reading this morning from the book of James, part of chapter one verse twelve grabbed my attention. “God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.” Testing and temptation! Is there a difference? Yes! Temptation is being enticed or allured to sin. Or you can say obeying Satan! Remember, God never tempts anyone, but God does test us. When God is testing us, He is providing us with choices as believers, wanting us to make the right decisions.Or you can say obeying God! Folks, it all boils down to obedience to God or obedience to Satan. Decisions! Decisions! Decisions!
Have a great day and may God bless you with grace, peace, and joy!
