Strength in Adversity

In the last few days, God has been teaching me about strength through adversity. A friend of mine lost her home and most of her possessions last Thursday in a fire that destroyed 27 homes. Today, I was doing some research on verses about adversity. Please be praying for Andrea and all the others who lost their home.

Please read carefully the promises God has made for His children:

He heals the brokenhearted, and binds their wounds.
Psalm 147:3 NASB

Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 KJV

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed….
2 Corinthians 4:8-9KJV

They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.
Psalm 112:7-8 NLT

Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30 NIV
