When you suffer, it’s tempting to think that God is mean. But James finishes verse 4 by saying you will be “not lacking anything.” God isn’t a bully; He works mightily to nurture and provide for His children. If you’re going through trials, however difficult, know that His Spirit is working in you to present you blameless and joyful before the throne of Christ. You are not abandoned. You are not alone. In all things, through all circumstances, God is molding, shaping and perfecting you. You lack nothing.
