“But you, be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work.” 2 Chronicles 15:7

St. Louis Cardinals ace and Hall of Famer Bob Gibson threw the only no-hitter of his storied career on August 14, 1971, and prevented an old nemesis, the Pittsburgh Pirates, from getting a single hit the entire game. The Pirates had hit him hard over the years, including one batted ball that broke his leg. But overcoming adversity was old hat for “Bullet” Bob.

Gibson overcame several childhood ailments—among them rickets, asthma, and a heart murmur—to become a top-level athlete. Known as a ferocious competitor, Gibson never took credit for his abilities saying, “It is not something I earned….It is a gift. It is something that was given.” God has given you talents, too, but they will be tested through trouble.

No one asks for trouble, but trouble comes anyway. When it does, as a Christian, don’t be afraid to embrace it—not because you’re glad for the problem but because God will be with you, strengthening your faith and endurance.

In fact, until you have overcome adversity, you can’t truly appreciate God’s gift of salvation. Tribulation reminds you of two important things: one, you need Jesus desperately; and two, His Spirit and power makes you an overcomer—more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). Nothing should faze you because nothing can stand between you and God.
