Word: Paradox – par·a·dox (ˈperəˌdäks/)
 
Definition: a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated or explained may prove to be well founded or true.
 
Prayer:
 
Gracious God, help us to understand the paradox that trials and tribulations truly do lead to victories, miracles, and greater capacity. May we understand that the enemy of our soul has no power or authority over the children of God. May we acknowledge that all things do work for good to those that love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. Gracious God, may the stretching seasons in our life only bring us closer to you and to the experience of everything you have in store for us. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
 
Scriptures:
 
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
 
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,
 
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
 
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
 
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
 
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
 
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
 
Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
 
But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle [you].
