Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, -James 1:2 mms
The path of life is tough. It is filled with various trials that test us, our faith. Trials are not a joyous occasion. They can be scary, painful, hurtful, trying, challenging, etc. So how am I expected to consider it all joy? By spending time with Jesus because in His presence is “fullness of joy”. (See devotional January 3, 2014) Keeping our focus on Him, seeking Him.
Spending time with Jesus is praying,reading and studying His word and worshipping Him. That is how to seek.
Continually seeking Him,
