  • Born for Adversity-What it Means to you
    Tuesday, August 23, 2022
    "Akh" in Hebrew means "brother." Proverbs 17 says, "A friend loves at all times, and a brother (Akh) is born for adversity." A brother is born for hard times, not just good times. A true brother is born in times of hardship, adversity, to stand with you when everything is against you. When we say brother; it doesn't mean much unless it's tested. Those who stand in adversity are the true ones. That's the most important time for being a brother. You are the brother of the Lord because you're born again; for times of adversity, to show yourself true, not just when God blesses you, but in times of testing. That's what you're born for, not to abandon or forsake Him, but to stand with Him all the more in adversity, trouble, persecution. When times are tough, show your true devotion to Him. When you go through a trial, don't despair; praise Him. You will be blessed because you were born as His brother, and a brother is born for adversity, and He stands with you in your adversity.
    From Message #997 - The Storm Brother
    Today's Mission
    When you encounter a test today, stand strong in devotion to Messiah, above all, praising Him through any adversity.
