Adversity…

20130206-161320.jpg

Pro 24:10 if you faint in the day of adversity, Your strength is small.

No one is exempt from the reality of adversity the only thing one can do in the midst of any situation is find some context for what we are facing not justification but context.

The privilege or pleasures of this life would always guarantee some level of adversity if your striving for some success or recognised for your talents & some are still suffering for their past mistakes. I’ve seen some people encounter adversity for being popular, envied, hated & despised for selfish reasons.

My analogy of adversity is like walking up a hill and the wind blowing against you, down the hill

The word adversity means : a state of misfortune or affliction

Current circumstances are often labeled as adversity, well if circumstances becomes discomfortable then it is what it is, however in body building terms resistance build muscle mass, some say, pain becomes pleasurable because of the outcome or the result.

So then is adversity really negative?

I remember a story of a young man sold into slavery because of jealousy which I assumed the end result would have been him bitter & angry with his brothers.
When the time came to help his family through his brother who sold out on him, this is what he said~

Gen 50:20 “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.

What was so amazing about this story, The Lord used the current lack of that time to gain the attention of Joseph’s family in order to save many people’s lives fulfilling the promises made to Abraham seed.

what do you consider the current economical lack?

Lack is a sign we fail to understand however, lack has a multi sense of purpose like this story of Joseph.

I was taught that abundance come from abundance (Mindset)

The bible says he that is in you is greater than he that is in the world.

So lack isn’t an inability rather a matter of understanding who is our source and realising how can we develop through these times.

I remember being exposed
to some issues that were just social labels, i guess what I did was just ripped the labels off, renaming every one of them.

Failure –

Frustration –

Jealousy –

Adversity –

Hate –

And the list goes on…..

In conclusion

The young lion learns to hunt & feeds for himself as the result of lack & hunger which is adverse to its (need )

What are you prepared to do in a time of recession, lack & misfortune?

What social definitions are you prepare to challenge…

What is needed in terms of a new found context in our life…

What happens when status and the pride of life seems to crumble…
