What causes adversity in my life?

Ecclesiastes 2:22-23So what do people get in this life for all their hard work and anxiety? Their days of labor are filled with pain and grief.

Trouble is an inevitable by-product of fallen human life.

Ezekiel 22:14“How strong and courageous will you be in my day of reckoning?”

Proverbs 12:13The wicked are trapped by their own words, but the godly escape such trouble.

Trouble is often the result of our own poor decisions and sin.

Jonah 1:3-4But Jonah got up and went in the opposite direction to get away from the Lord. . . . He found a ship leaving for Tarshish. . . . But the Lord hurled a powerful wind over the sea.

We can expect to find ourselves in deep trouble if we insist on running away from God.

Psalm 62:3-4So many enemies against one man—all of them trying to kill me. . . . They delight in telling lies about me.

Trouble is sometimes undeserved or caused by others.
