Today’s Quote on Adversity

“I implore you to not give in to despair. It is a dangerous temptation because our adversary has refined it to the point that it is quite subtle. Hopelessness constricts and withers the heart, rendering it unable to sense God’s blessings and grace. It also causes you to exaggerate the adversities of life and makes your burden seem too heavy for you to bear. Yet God’s plans for you and His ways of bringing about His plans, are infinitely wise.”  ~Madame Guyon

For Reflection: Luke 12:22-26

Today’s Quote on Adversity

“We need to expect moments of crisis and struggle. We need to get ready to fight. And we need to hold on to our hope for the final victory. Because our conflict sets the stage for God’s conquest. Resistance is often fiercest on the borderline of  breakthrough.”  ~Steven Furtick

Scripture for Reflection: Ephesians 6:10-18

“Don’t underestimate what the Lord is doing in your life. You may not think it’s important, but it is. What you say to people, how you treat others, and the way you handle adversity are like stored-up treasures – God uses these things to reveal Himself to the world. When you stand for righteousness and refuse to compromise, you are bearing witness to Him.”  ~Charles Stanley

For reflection: Matthew 6:20-21

Today’s Quote on Adversity

“When troubles come, you will need God’s help to find the particular insights, consoling thoughts, and wisdom you will need to get you through. Some of these you may have already known intellectually, but God will have to make them real and relevant in a new way. Others you will not have seen before and will have to learn. But that is how you survive.” -Unknown
