In the Face of Adversity

Remember the goal of dealing with each situation in a way which will bring the Father’s approval.

Meditation Thought: “And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17)

“This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Think on this: look to this thought and goal – when trials come, when temptations come, when irritations come – remember the goal of dealing with each situation in a way which will bring the Father’s approval, as He gave His approval to His Son who obeyed and was righteous.

Prayer: Father, enable me to accomplish what I seek: the overcoming of pride, of laziness, of fear, of selfishness in the face of adversity, so that I may allow Your Spirit to direct me in thinking, saying and doing what Jesus Christ would do if placed where I am. In His Precious Name, Amen.
