God allows unfavorable conditions that we think will cut us down for good to purge us so that we can bear more fruit later. When exercising a muscle, it must be put under resistance to rise above the challenge. You cannot grow stronger in anything if you do not endure obstacles that require you to adapt to what is happening to you. God is always closest to you in the midst of those trials, so seek refuge in His Word. If God abides in you, He will supply all that you need for a lifetime of stability and fruitfulness!
