The ability of a man to be satisfied in God's secrecy makes Him firmer and stronger in the faith. It is hard to abstain bragging when everybody derides you, but this is no reason for one to blot out His inheritance.
In my life, i have seen this take place, and the concequences are regrettable; however, also, our God is forever faithful in His word and deed. He always finds a way to establish His covenant.
Thus, God pretty much knows how we are surrounded by enemies against us. These are spirits, evils and principalities, whose main mandate is to form and effect weapons against us.
Though i feel like wanting to say it out, wanting to show them, if the time is not yet right Lord, suppress it. For i will only lead myself to destruction. You are my fortress.
