"Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him."NIV
"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him."KJV
If we think about it, every trial, every tribulation, every difficulty is a temptation. They are opportunities for us to give in or give up. If we will keep our human nature under control and allow the Holy Spirit to empower our spirit, we will be able to persevere under any trial or temptation.
Heavenly Father, it is so hard to withstand difficult times and so often we feel like giving up. We ask for a fresh filling of Your Holy Spirit so that we will have divine control when temptation comes our way. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
