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.
