Like any good father, God wants to see His children grow. And His primary way of growing our faith is through adversity—there simply is no more effective way of deepening our relationship with Him.
In this message, Dr. Stanley teaches us to accept God’s purposes in adversity. But we must choose to view adversity as an opportunity, rather than as an obstacle. When we do that, we grow in our Christlikeness.
Adversity is a given. Growth is optional.
