A Kingdom Leader is committed to character, a by-product of patience during trials and tribulation. This character comes from a person who is unswerving from his loyalty to faith and a deliberate purpose.
The dross of the heart is removed from the pure and precious medal of the soul. It leaves the pristine reflection of God in a leader’s life. The asset of difficulties helps them accomplish patience and remain under any trial that comes their way.
Are you willing to be steadfast, constant and endure the greatest trials and sufferings? Are you remaining under trials in a God-honoring way so as to learn the lesson they are sent to teach? Or, do you get out from under them in an effort to be relieved of their pressure?
Tried integrity is a state of mind that has stood the test and stayed under trials. Nehemiah remains patient through the entire process of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, one brick at a time.
Romans 5:3-4 says. . . We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; and character, hope. (1)
We hope and pray that you will reflect Jesus Christ today.
