Adversity

SOURCE:  Jerry Bridges, Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts

In order to trust God, we must always view our adverse circumstances through the eyes of faith, not of sense.

And just as the faith of salvation comes through hearing the message of the gospel (Romans 10:17), so the faith to trust God in adversity comes through the Word of God alone.

It is only in the Scriptures that we find an adequate view of God’s relationship to and involvement in our painful circumstances.

It is only from the Scriptures, applied to our hearts by the Holy Spirit, that we receive the grace to trust God in adversity.
