Romans 12:12 states, “Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.”
In times of distress and various trials, we must be on guard against the wrong responses. God’s Word gives the formula for endurance through these trials. In the midst of distress, we must keep our focus upon the right things. According to the verse above, we must: 1.

Be prayerful (seeking Divine direction to navigate through the trials). To continue reading the update from Eli Schrock, please click the link below.
