Problems. Challenges. Hard times. Call them what you like, but they are inevitable in a Christian’s life. In Life’s Challenges Your Opportunities, John Hagee provides valuable insights into dealing with these situations. Hagee focuses on the principle of “promise, problem and provision.” He explains that when God makes a promise, it is followed by a problem that refines and purifies the believer to a point where God’s provision can be received. Using a balanced mixture of personal stories and biblical accounts, Hagee clearly illustrates that problems are not to be avoided, but are to be faced straight on with the knowledge that God is using them to develop the Christian’s divine destiny. Difficult times signal the beginning of a spiritual growth period that leads to a victorious ending. Hagee’s step-by-step guidance gives much-needed hope and encouragement for troubled times ahead.
