JAMES 1:3-4 MSG | “YOU KNOW THAT UNDER PRESSURE, YOUR FAITH-LIFE IS FORCED INTO THE OPEN AND SHOWS ITS TRUE COLOURS. SO DON’T TRY TO GET OUT OF ANYTHING PREMATURELY. LET IT DO ITS WORK SO YOU BECOME MATURE AND WELL-DEVELOPED, NOT DEFICIENT IN ANY WAY.”
Recently, the Holy Spirit spoke these words to me : “I am making you into a diamond.” Then, He told me that this word is not for me alone, but for others that He’s shaping into diamonds too.
The diamond is known for its beauty and hardness. Interestingly, it is formed in the depths of the earth under extreme temperature and pressure. Carbon atoms in the earth’s mantle undergo metamorphosis under intense temperature and pressure to form diamonds. No intense temperature and pressure, no diamond.
James 1:3-4 describes the process by which the human diamond is formed. Obedience to the Holy Spirit sometimes leads you to uncomfortable moments where you face pressure. God, in these situations, transforms you into a beautiful diamond. Obedience to God is not convenient. That’s why many dodge the processes of God. Receive grace from the Holy Spirit today to obey Him.🙏
