“…we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope…”
Have you ever rejoiced in your trials? It’s much easier to rejoice after a trial, since you can look back and see how God used it. But it’s far more difficult to rejoice while you are in the middle of a difficult situation. This week, memorize and meditate upon these verses. Then, when hardship rears its ugly head, repeat these verses to yourself and be glad for the endurance, character, and hope that is being produced within you through your suffering.
