Thriving through adversity
Thriving through adversity is a possibility. God knows how to make all things work together in our favour. Recently I had begun to see “perception” in a different light and understand the power of perception.
It is How you see a thing, how you perceive it and your understanding of it that will determine your stance in it, what it will be to you, and ultimately how you act towards it.
And so GOD was showing me, that it is not THE dictionary meaning of adversity that matters but MY definition of it.
So permit me tonight to share with you four basic truths about thriving through adversity that will hopefully shape your perception of it and ultimately your ability to thrive through it.

Adversity is bringing you to a place of glory, a place of recognition, of victory, of acceptance and a place of reign.
A practical example of this is the life of Joseph in the bible. It is almost impossible to talk about adversity without talking about Joseph.
Joseph went through every kind of adversity imaginable.
From being envied and hated by the very people who of all people, were supposed to celebrate him and his dream- his family, to being sold by the people who were also supposed to protect him – his family, to being wrongly accused and sentenced to prison on account of a wrong accusation. Talk about adversity.
