Understanding the Winds of Adversity
Our first response to adversity should not be to try to remove it, but to allow it to reveal our true weaknesses.
Often we look at a situation as bad circumstances, nothing more. However, could it be that God has a divine purpose for allowing adversity? Look at the benefits of going through adversity. Using the example of an eagle soaring in turbulent winds. The power of the Christian to rise above pressures and temptations comes from our identification with the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ: “That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death” (Philippines 3:10).
This booklet reveals five truths which give the basis of power over sin and also explores topics such as: performing self–examination, conquering our pride, recognizing our weaknesses, crying out to God, purifying our faith, and re–evaluating our priorities.
