1 Kings 11:23
God also raised up another adversary to Him, Rezon the son of Eliada, who had fled from his lord Hadadezer king of Zobah.
This is one of those verses that really makes you think. So many times when we see troubles coming in our lives we automatically think it's the devil. We don't think that God would raise somebody up against us do we? Well I believe that no matter what comes up against us or who it is from, that God knows what we can handle it and that He wants us to grow closer to Him through that time. There will be many things that come up in your life that you wouldn't raise your hand up for to volunteer, but we must remember that God chose us to go through it. He allows things to happen because He sees a champion in us and He beleives we will be victorious. Take time to thank Him for the adversary in your life, and ask Him to help you get through the situation, He can and He will!
