Overcoming Tribulation

The Bible tells us to glory in tribulations!
  
Romans 5:3-5 says, Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

Look at the promise and progression through our trial, hardships, crises, and tribulations.

1. Tribulation brings patience. - learn to wait
2. Patience brings experience. - learn to trust
3. Experience brings hope. - learn the truth
4. This hope enables us to not be ashamed.- live for Christ.

Be wise today and always - If Jesus is for you who could come against?
