Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing.                  (James 1:2-4)

Effective leaders have the knack for challenging soldiers to the limit without breaking their spirit. Even before the outcome has occurred, they somehow know that the experience will be beneficial — for individual soldiers and for the unit. In the midst of the trial it is easy to doubt the outcome. It helps when soldiers can trust that their leaders know what they are doing. Life has its trials.

This verse assures us that God is a leader who knows what He is doing. He knows your strengths. He knows your weaknesses. He knows your limits. He’ll never overextend you. He will provide a way for you to make it! But that’s not all. He uses trials to grow you physically, mentally, and spiritually. Bottom line: God knows your full potential and He wants to take you to the very limits.
