I came across this quote this morning by TD Jakes: "You face your greatest opposition when you're closet to you biggest miracle."
It was in a meme and placed prominently above a Christian News Stream. I suppose it is intended to inspire and touches the emotions, I guess, but is it really true? There really is no Biblical foundation for this idiom to work. Maybe once or twice...but the circumstances around it would have be the right place in the right time. Christianese is a often a strange language with strange unfounded foundations for facing hard times. The remedy doesnt always work. Best method for hard times is to seek the God who is there..and not the one we want to be there who is always quick to dole out an emotionally charged platitude.
