By James Parker Jr.You Never Know Where A Man Stands Until The Setbacks, Heartbreaks, Interruptions and Trials Hit The Fan.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” In his honor let’s take the best and prayerfully make it better. God’s measure of a man or woman is not where we stand in times of comfort, calm, and convenience; it’s where we stand in times of crisis, calamity, and challenge. {{more}}Where do you stand when the Setbacks, Heartbreaks, Interruptions, and Trials Hit the Fan? It’s one of the greatest questions we can ever honestly answer about ourselves, and truly know about the people with whom we are in any important relationship. How do you handle Setbacks? Is a Setback just a setup for your comeback, or is it your downfall? When the devil attacks you with Heartbreaks, with a goal to kill God’s will, steal your zeal, and destroy your joy, do you react negatively or respond positively? In times of Interruptions and Trials, are you more like a thermometer or a thermostat? Do you merely measure, conform to, and reflect the environment around you like a thermometer, or do you regulate the temperature by transforming it and taking it to another level like a thermostat?When you suffer a major misfortune, do you focus on what you have lost or on what you have left?When life’s troubles set you up to take you out by pressuring you to give up, give out, and get out, do you get bitter, or do your best to get better? When the enemy has your name listed daily in the devil’s diary, do you grow wings, or do you reach for crutches? When you are under satanic surveillance and the attacks keep coming from all directions, do you become miserable or more mature? When life’s calamities yank the rug from under your feet, do you throw up, or do you get up and grow up? When burdens body slam you face down to the ground, is God’s grace sufficient, or do you get grumpy? Do you get prayerful or do you go postal?When you’re faced with giant “Goliath” opportunities that are disguised as huge problems, are they too big to hit, or too big to miss? How do you handle a financial crisis? For most people, the shortest nerve in the body is from the brain to the back pocket. When you have too much month at the end of your money, are you more likely to get invigorated or intoxicated? When you suffer a major misfortune, do you focus on what you have lost or on what you have left? When you experience a life changing, nerve breaking, soul shaking painful interruption, do you look for something to take that calms your nerves or look to the One who can strengthen your knees? When your best laid plans get sidetracked by crushing grief, do you run for prescription drug tranquilizers or trust in God, the stabilizer? Do you try to look for a way to escape with drugs like, LSD, or do you find the way to cope with GOD?When the world jolts you with an unexpected heartbreak, do you react like a rocky captain in a calm ship, or do you respond like a calm captain does even in a rocky ship? How do you resolve conflict? Do you collaborate or do you escalate? When tempers flare, do you talk, or do you walk? When things go wrong even though you’ve done what’s right, how do you fight? Do you fight with the sword of the Spirit, “God’s Word,” or fight with weapons of mass destruction like your fist, or sharp, hurtful, angry words that cut like a knife? Did you know that the second most deadly weapon of mass destruction is a gun; the first is the human tongue? Do you try to overcome evil with evil, or overcome evil with good?When your enemies are hungry, are you more likely to fight for them or vengefully abuse them? How do you deal with a crisis? Do you face the problem, find the best solution, and then take positive action? Or do you fold like a pressed napkin and fall like a deck of cards built in a wind tunnel under the pressure? The purpose of this book is to pre0pare you for the Changes, Crises, Calamities, and Challenges that you are facing right now and the ones soon coming your way.
