James 1:12 says; bless is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. To deny the existence of God based on the presence of adversity and pain is to say that in order to validate His existence God must conduct Himself according to my wishes. Clearly, there are multiple problems with that approach. There really are no good alternatives when it comes to the question of adversity. Adversity is God’s tool to promote growth among His children. To resist this principle is to resist all God wants to do in your life; it is to say no to spiritual growth. So do not be numb to the promise God left in the book of James. Have a wonderful day!
