“….No human being will escape adversity….”

ADVERSITY:  This too, is a gift from God.  Often, some of life’s greatest gifts are the endurance of pain and suffering.  Ecclesiastes 7:14  –  In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him.  We have adversity in every aspect of life; family, personal, business, and church.  No human being will escape adversity.  But, everyone can overcome adversity, which that too, is a gift from God.  We can Trust, we can have Faith, we can have Hope, and we can have Love.  It says in John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  Romans 5:3-5 – More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.  Luke 14:27 – Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. …..
