A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for Adversity. Proverbs 17:17. If thou faint in the day of Adversity, thy strength is small. Proverbs 24:10. In the day of Prosperity be joyful, but in the day of Adversity, consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him. (Should find no other Source for anything, but the Lord}. Ecclesiastes 7:14. And therefore will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you, and therefore will He be Exalted, that He may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of Judgment: blessed are all they that Wait for Him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: He will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when He shall hear it, He will answer thee. And though the Lord give you THE BREAD OF ADVERSITY, AND THE WATER OF AFFLICTION, yet shall not thy teachers be removed (hidden) into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy Teachers: And thine ears shall hear a Word behind thee, saying, This is the Way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Isaiah 30:18-21.But now the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither Adversary nor evil occurr(ing) . 1 Kings 5:4. Be sober, be vigilant; because your Adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the Faith, knowing that the same Afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all Grace, who hath called us unto His Eternal Glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you Perfect, Stablish, Strengthen, Settle you. 1 Peter 5:8-10. Adversity from the Lord, through a Brother, OR through a sinner is designed to Strengthen and Encourage you in your Walk with the Lord.. Either way, use the adversity in your Life, TO GROW IN THE LORD, no matter what, and, Be Blessed.
