It’ Showtime! Join me as we take the stage to reflect on this powerful invitation from James 1:2-4 to pursue maturity in Christ. Every day has many offers, from working, hanging and relaxing to simply watching other people live their life. But none of those offers will take you where God is inviting you to go today.  Join MIB as we pursue the path to maturity, by taking the stage of life and experiencing all that God has to offer. Don’t forget to comment and tell me how you’re taking the stage in your life.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4

When you follow Christ, you’re not just going through life aimlessly. You’re on life’s stage while God is masterfully ordering your steps and His plan for your life, even through trials and challenges. His plans for you are beyond what you think, will require more than you think and the rewards are greater than you think. Are you ready to take the stage? Then, it’s time to submit to the process that leads you to the scene called mature and complete, not lacking anything. Even if you don’t feel ready or you don’t follow Him, God still wants you to come closer to Him and experience His plan for your life. God is working even when you’re not.

It’s Time To Take The Stage

Day 1: Know your lines – Study the Scriptures

Read James 1:2-4. Say it out loud at least 3 times. Underline words that stand out. Pray and ask God for a deeper understanding of what the words mean for you personally.


Meditating on God’s Word is simple. The goal is to create a habit of reflecting on Him everyday. As you draw closer, He will begin to show Himself in new and exciting ways. Don’t forget to check out day 2 of the It’s Showtime Devotional, which will post here @ Ministry in Business (Rhonda Ware Williams).
