The Teaching of Adversity

Oswald Chambers 90x115by Oswald Chambers

In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world β€”John 16:33

The typical view of the Christian life is that it means being delivered from all adversity. But it actually means being delivered in adversity, which is something very different. β€œHe who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling . . .” ( Psalm 91:1,10 )β€” the place where you are at one with God.
