INTRODUCTION:

Believers are often faced with a myriad of realities, some sad and some glad. All of these things are permitted by God for a reason, but what is IMPORTANT is that we RESPOND RIGHT. As we do that, we can expect God to move in ways that are FAVORABLE to us.

In this passage, we will see three conditions and three godly responses and they are as FOLLOWS:
