Look at every adversity as an opportunity in disguise (John J. Wagner, pastor)
An old forties song told us that “Into each life some rain must fall,” and it seems that the rain always falls at the wrong time, doesn’t it? When we learn to see such things as Wagner suggests, we will look at them differently, seeing them as an opportunity to believe God. With that outlook, we can face adversity expectantly.
But by means of their suffering, he rescues those who suffer. For he gets their attention through adversity (Job 36:15).
