"Troubles are seized opportunities for the greater testimony, the testimony of Jesus Christ."
When we see trouble, we must recognize it as an opportunity to magnify God so that he will receive the glory. The testimony will come when we inject the gospel of Jesus into the situation. The glory does not come without troubles. How is light recognized, if there is never any darkness? How is less greater appreciated if there are no sacrifices or works to be offered to obtain the grater? Perceiving the storm as a means of moving things out of the way that should not be there is desired by those willing to go through. Greater comes in the great, great comes in the good- all things are "working" for the good of those called according to his purpose. Troubles have great opportunities when seized as greater opportunities.
Verily, verily, I'm say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also ;and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
