Making the Best Out of a Bad Situation
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33
Despite this humbling rejection, Churchill went on with his life. In fact, the following year he made the “Iron Curtain” speech upon which the free world based its policy during the Cold War. He also won a Pulitzer Prize for his six-volume history of World War II and served another term as prime minister and many years as the elder statesman of the free world.
Jesus warned that “in [this] world, you will have tribulation.” You will face many rejections, roadblocks, and even landmines in your life. Sometimes God allows us to face these challenges to teach, test, or even redirect us. Learn to view these hardships as opportunities to make yourself stronger. You just might discover that Mrs. Churchill was right! It could be a blessing in disguise.
