supercompensation

By February 16, 2010Church

In the world of strength training, there is something called the principle of supercompensation.  The more a muscle is broken down, the more it builds back up.

The same is true in life when we face adversity with faith that God will pull us through.  Just as a broken bone often emerges stronger when it is fully healed, our trials and challenges often strengthen our ability to trust in God.

  • Financial difficulties remind us that God is the provider of all that we need.
  • Relational losses drive us back to the One who will never leave us.
  • Grieving the death of a loved one is a chance to reaffirm our hope in what is to come.

It’s amazing how God can even redefine something such as adversity.
