Here’s one of my favorite memory verses:
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously without reproach, and it will be given to him.” –James 1:2-5
We can depend on the solid Rock of Jesus Christ and whatever storms we encounter in life, whenever we get knocked down, Jesus is there to heal us, help us understand what we are learning (like endurance or the perfecting of our faith in another way), and thank the Lord for the benefits we gain from our trial.
We don’t rejoice in the pain or problems we encounter, but we rejoice in God’s grace, wisdom and mercy He displays through the crisis. He’s there. He cares. He’s got our best in mind. So we praise Him in all circumstances.
