There's a reason you went through what you did this year.
The rewards of Christianity are exhilarating. You experience an exclusive relationship with the Lord. Jesus is a friend that sticks closer than a brother, you can tell Him anything. He’s your role model, mentor, and constant companion. (Proverbs 18:24). His Holy Spirit will guide you in all truth and even makes intercession on your behalf. (John 16:13, Romans 8:26-27). And many other benefits come from such a union. There are also the relentless attacks form the enemy. Such actions are without provocation and aimed at you merely because you love the Lord with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind. (Luke 10:27, AMP). He recognizes how blessed you’ve been since surrendering your life to Christ, and this terrifies the enemy. Satan is jealous because of such a commitment and the relationship with Christ. The devil wants you back. When you turned your back on Him, he was outraged, and has been on a mission ever since to make your life miserable. Beloved, God must be doing something extraordinary, or the devil wouldn’t be waging war against you. Fret not because you wear the Victor’s crown and win!
Circumstances accelerated from difficult to worse. All your efforts gained no progress. What seems like an incredible opportunity presented more frustration and discouragement. You’re at a loss at what to do next. Beloved, when the enemy fights you the hardest get up and tell yourself, this will not defeat me. When I lost my job at the wrong age to abuse of power, hopelessness tried to grip me. But faith in God overruled, and it had to flee in terror. Despite my years of tenure, credentials, pleasant demeanor, and the ideal experience, this season lasted for three years and eleven months. But out of the ashes; God birthed a passion, He blessed me with when I was merely a child. This propelled me on a global platform that travels where my feet may never go. This was not what the Head of Resources had in mind when she set in motion to crush my spirit. Perseverance in faith introduces possibilities that baffle the enemy.
Beloved, declare with me; the coming New Year is bright with promise, victory, and possibilities beyond imagination. God has seen your faithfulness despite fierce opposition; He’s proud of you. He’s looking into the future and prepares the outcome that’s in your favor. Continue to fight the good fight of faith. (1 Timothy 6:12). Don’t give in to the devil’s pressure and antagonism. Remind him of his future and proceed with the Lord on an adventure of a lifetime.
