About

Trouble is something all people must deal with: the loss of a spouse, a job, one's health, one's possessions, one's freedom. Jay E. Adams writes, "While God has not yet removed trouble from the Christian or the Christian from trouble, he has, by the Word and his sprit, given believers all that is necessary to handle trouble successfully."

Focusing on Philippians 1:12–26, where Paul portrays hardship as an opportunity to glorify Christ, Adams presents clear and biblical directives for discerning God's hand at work in bringing good out of troublesome circumstances, great or small.
