Intense Spiritual Growth

“Adversity is not simply a tool. It is God’s most effective tool for the advancement of our spiritual lives. The circumstances and events that we see as setbacks are oftentimes the very things that launch us into periods of intense spiritual growth. Once we begin to understand this, and accept it as a spiritual fact of life, adversity becomes easier to bear.”

 –Charles Stanley

“Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of sin.”

Romans 4:8

“Yes, you should rejoice, and I will share your joy.”

Philippians 2:18
