- adverse fortune or fate; a condition marked by misfortune, calamity, or distress: A friend will show his or her true colors in times of adversity.
Adversity sometimes finds the man or woman. It meets them at the very core of their circumstance. It is a circumstance the Lord allowed. How will you deal with it? It tests you like no other situation. It is plain and simple, a trial. Of course we do not want a trial in our lives. We'd prefer to be trouble free. That however is not God's plan. Because in the mist of the trial we have literally no where to turn but to The Lord. That is the nature of our circumstance. no one can help you but The Lord.
If you find yourself having a pity party in the mist of your circumstance, that means The Lord is sending a challenge that will confront you and build your resolve to meet the challenge through His word. Its a powerful weapon to fight the onslaught of the circumstance that has been placed in your path.
What will you do? How will you respond? I choose to give praise and honor to God right in the mist of the trial. God is good and His mercy endures forever through His Son Jesus Christ.
