“If I must boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity.” II Corinthians 11:30. We have a choice about how we are going to view the sharp-toothed people and adverse circumstances of our lives. We recognize the danger they pose, but what if we were to let their threats drive us closer to the Lord? Now, though they seem to be working against us, they are actually working for our good. The apostle Paul learned to look at trouble in this way. He trained himself to view the perils of his life as opportunities to demonstrate his faithfulness to Christ. When we keep our eyes on Christ, obstacles become opportunities.
