“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8
“…If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:11
“Don’t quit because it’s hard, because you don’t have the help you want, because you don’t believe I will bring you the help you need, because you feel the resources aren’t there,” the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart. “THE ENEMY WANTS YOU TO QUIT.”
The Lord had once again shortly before telling me this given me a word He has given me before – and will likely give me again.
The devil DOES NOT like it when we serve the Lord Jesus Christ, and I believe he particularly hates it when we are totally sold out to Jesus and to proclaiming Him to the world and helping people to find and forever follow Him.
I can’t tell you how many times since the Lord led me to start Walk by Faith Ministry the devil has tried to destroy me and this ministry – and how many times he has tried to get me so beaten down and discouraged that I would quit and shut down the ministry.
Friend, I will NOT quit this ministry unless and until the Lord tells me to shut it down. Instead of quitting, in the strength of and with the resources provided by the Lord Jesus Christ, I WILL PERSEVERE.
And that needs to be the attitude of all of us who love and serve Jesus. We must PERSEVERE in the love and strength of Christ for the glory of Christ!
And so it will be we will have victory in Jesus – for the glory of God, AMEN!
