Adversity is a part of life. It can come in many forms, such as job loss, illness, or
relationship problems. When we face adversity, it can be easy to feel discouraged and
give up. However, it is essential to remember that adversity can also be an opportunity
Here are a few tips for advancing through adversity:
- Don’t give up. Our Salvation is proven by the trials from God. It is important to stay
positive and keep moving forward, even when things are tough. The Bible says, “Let us
not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose
heart” (Gal 6:9 NKJV).
- Find a support system. As believers, we are commanded to help our brothers and sisters
in Christ. Talking to friends, family, or a Pastor can help you to cope with adversity and
- Take care of yourself. Make sure to get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and exercise
regularly. Taking care of your physical and mental health will help you to better cope
- Learn from your experiences. Adversity can teach us valuable lessons about ourselves
and the world around us. Jesus said, “Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than
many sparrows” (Matthew 10:31 ESV). Take the time to reflect on your experiences and
learn from them.
- Help others. Helping others can give you a sense of purpose. It can also take your mind
off of your own problems. Jesus taught us in Mark 10:45 (NKJV) “For even the Son of
Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many”.
Adversity can be a difficult challenge, but it is also an opportunity for growth. By following
these tips, you can advance through adversity and become a stronger person.
