Charles Stanley - The Valley Experiences in Our Life
All of us will endure difficult circumstances in our lives. No one can completely escape all suffering. But as believers in an all-powerful, loving God, we know that He will take us through these low places to prepare us for ascending new heights. In “The Valley Experiences in Our Life,” Dr. Stanley reminds us that God is with us at all times and has a purpose for every adversity He allows.
God allows adversity for at least three reasons: 1. God uses adversity to get our attention. 2. Adversity leads to examination. 3. The effective lesson leads to change in behavior.
If you are willing to allow God to surface the inner rubbish of your life, and if you are willing to change what needs to be changed, you will emerge from adversity closer to Christ, more mature as His child, and with far greater potential to reflect the love of God to the world around you.
