Adversity Has Meaning

“For the believer all pain has meaning; all adversity is profitable. There is no question that adversity is difficult. It usually takes us by surprise and seems to strike where we are most vulnerable. To us it often appears completely senseless and irrational, but to God none of it is either senseless or irrational. He has a purpose in every pain He brings or allows in our lives. We can be sure that in some way He intends it for our profit and His glory.”

–Jerry Bridges

“Many people say, “Who will show us better times?”  Let your face smile on us, Lord.”

Psalm 4:6

“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.”

Romans 5:3
