The enemy comes to steal our Hope because it’s effective…
If you have a dream, one that could make a positive difference, you will likely face opposition – even from the least likely of sources. I believe that all the trials we face ultimately help to develop us into who God intends for us to be.
So how do you properly respond to this?
I think it’s important for us to remember that facing opposition doesn’t mean that we are bad or wrong. Rather, when the enemy comes against us – the reasoning is quite the opposite. For the enemy does not come for anything that isn’t worthwhile; he works hardest to tear down the ones who are working for God. Too often, we have seen amazing ministries lose traction because of sin committed by their leadership. However, we must not turn away from people when they err. Instead, we must lean into them even more and give them the forgiveness, understanding, and love that we enjoy from God.
As believers, we choose to fix ourselves on the only truly firm foundation. We can overcome all discouragement, trials, and enemies through the power of Christ Jesus. Look back on how far you’ve come, remember your why, and ask God to get you through! I will build my life upon your love it is a firm foundation. I will put my trust in you alone & I will not be shaken.
