What do you do in the midst of adversity?

In The Midst of Adversity

What I have learned as I'm writing my new book is that storms will come, but how you deal with storms determine your victory or defeat. For instance, God gave me a promise and I have been facing adversity in obtaining the promise. I have been tempted to quit countless times, but each time, I overcame the temptation.

In the beginning, I used to faint during adversity, question if I really heard from God and endure mental torture. Now, through this faith journey, I have learned how to stand in the midst of adversity. I have to stand on God's word no matter what I see going on around me. It's like being in a thunderstorm and knowing sunshine is on the other side even though you can't see it. You can either camp out in the storm and get beat up, or you can continue to press through to the other side. I have chosen to press through and obtain the promise, like Abraham.

It is vital to our success, that we not only learn the word and the voice of God, but that we apply what we learn and listen to His voice. That is the only way you will be able to stand when it seems as if the world is caving in around you and you will never have victory over seemingly hopeless situations. You have to stand!

I am not talking about something I have read, I'm writing about what I have been through. I have obtained victory over many situations and that's why I can encourage others and share what I know.

Obtaining the promises of God is not for the faint of heart, these are the ones who don't inherit the promises. You must be strong in faith. Without faith, it's impossible to please God.

If you are looking for answers on how to stay strong, how to press forward, how to obtain victory, I am revealing what I went through in my brand new book, due for release June 2009.

God bless you and have an awesome week!

  1. Awesome article! One scripture comes to mind: Ecclesiastes 9:11 (The Message)

    I took another walk around the neighborhood and realized that on this earth as it is—
    The race is not always to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor satisfaction to the wise, Nor riches to the smart, Nor grace to the learned. Sooner or later bad luck hits us all.

    When I read this passage I know that storms will come because noone is immune BUT we must resist the temptation to want to give in. I love when you stated obtaining the promises of God is not for the faint of true!

    We must run the race of faith like never before. I will leave you with this:

    1 Corinthians 9:24 (Amp)

    Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but [only] one receives the prize? So run [your race] that you may lay hold [of the prize] and make it yours.
