Admiral Stockdale, who spent eight years in a prisoner of war camp, advises us not to confuse faith that we will prevail in the end with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of our current reality.
When you know who God is, it gives you a proper perspective of your situation (Isa 40:28-31).
- Do you ignore the problem or face reality?
- Do you give up or focus on God’s will?
- Do you rely solely on your own power or lean on God during the trial?
