And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Too many times we will accuse God of not being faithful, when in truth, we respond out of emotion instead of commitment. Is your relationship with God a commitment, or an emotional high? Is your response to the trials you face going to be a response that stems from emotion – or from commitment?
Often times the emotions we feel as the weight of trials bear down upon us overflows in our responses to loved ones, and most notably, God. Being committed means that we trust that God has everything under control.
