Trouble is guaranteed to show up in the life of a believer. However, we must never run from it because it’s one way God strengthens and matures us. He promises never to leave us in our situation; we can be confident that when something bad happens, God will always bring us good after it. Believing that He wants to run us over with His goodness allows Him to show us undeserved favor. Spiritual growth is the result of going through pressure; this type of development is God’s will for us. Just like Paul, we can expect trials and tribulations; God delivered him through every one of them, and He’ll deliver us as well. Realizing that adversity is how God prepares us for assignments gives us clarity on the “why” behind it.
