Ephesians 6:13 – Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Sometimes, people have problems because they are making poor choices or doing something wrong. But other times, people are having difficulties because they are doing something right.
When you’re determined to fulfill your God-given destiny, and you’re taking steps to improve your life or make a difference in your family or community, don’t be surprised if you face opposition. The enemy is not going to just roll out the red carpet and watch you fulfill your God-given destiny. He’ll do whatever he can to keep you from moving forward. The Apostle Paul said this, “A wide door of opportunity is open for me and there are many adversaries.”
It is found that anytime we try to go forward in life, anytime we try to make progress, there will be opposition. But with God on our side, we can stand our ground!
Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. If you’re facing opposition today, keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping. Keep fighting the good fight of faith until you see the victory He has in store for you!
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise of victory. I choose today to take my eyes off my challenges and focus on You. Thank You for equipping me with Your armor so that I can stand strong in You. In Jesus’ Name… Amen!
