While I continue to examine James 1 we are faced with even more proof that no child like faith is the pillar of any success in the life of a Christian. It is exactly what I think most of us lack. We would like to have this and deep down we think we deserve it but world and past experiences keep us from having heaven on earth. I think it is precisely God’s plan what is speaking to us from the depths of our soul but fear, lack of trust and suspicion keeps us double-minded. All those emotions throws us into the depths of the emotional turmoil just like the deep dark depths of the sea.
Did you know that one of the sea synonyms is briny deep? And I do not know about you but when I think briny deep I think a lot of marinating and transforming just like a pickle. It almost gives you time to think and shows you that you have to grow in your faith and stand strong so you can not only come up for air but sore high up into the sky.
