Crisis is inevitable in the life of anyone that want to be great. This crisis, can be financial, spiritual, marital, relationship etc. Crisis are neither friend nor enemy. The reason is simple, they are not friend because crisis time is demanding and overwhelming, but crisis is also needed for your promotion and elevation. One thing that should be in your mind, the trial of men cannot be commensurate to the appointment of God.
Time does not reveals the truth but it exposes the true color of men. In the school of success originality is what last not counterfeit. We all live in this world of thorn and thistle, wheat and tares, good and bad, also friends and enemies. It is not all the friendly face that you are seeing that are truthfully friends. The only thing that truly reveal the real from non-real is crisis.
Thus, one of the lessons that you can learn from crisis is to know the real people sent from God and identify the sent people from devil. One of the things that will make your trial time become easier is the kind of people that are there with you.
