Despite the Adversity
Ecclesiastes 7:14 “In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: Surely God has appointed the one as well as the other.”
The Lord doesn’t promise us an adversity-free life, but He tells us to not fear because He has overcome the world and He will be with us always.
Daniel 3:16-18 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king. But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”
This side of Heaven, whether good times or bad, we must give all the praise, glory and honor to our Almighty Creator Father God. Direct our steps O Lord along the path to eternal life in your kingdom. Amen.
Psalm 94:12-13 “ Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O Lord, and teach out of Your law, that You may give him rest from the days of adversity.”
Child of God, Have faith, keep calm and stand firm on the promises of God in the face of adversity.
In Christ, Brian
