The Attacks Are On The Way, But You Must Hold to Your Integrity
All week I was faced with problem after problem. I knew it was going to occur because beforehand God released a new word for me during a revival. So the next day, here comes trouble. From work to home to church and family, there were problems. I realized when facing problems, I would shut down for moment. But this time anger got the best of me. It usually takes a lot for me to get angry. The enemy knew that and played right on it. I began to stress out and started converting back to old habits. After the attack before last, I asked the Lord, “why is this is person acting in this manner? I just don’t get leadership!” I was ready to walk away but then the Lord before going to bed led me to a scripture: I Peter 4:12-13 says that, ” Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” Then He took me to another scripture in Isaiah 54:17 which says that, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment, You shall condemn.” Both of the scripture are describing attempts and trials but they will not ruin or touch you. God told me to look to the right and I saw a pile of weapons that were blocked and never prospered. The next morning, more trouble. For in all this, I still had joy in my heart and dug deep within to worship God like never before
Incidents are going to occur that will not make any sense and people are going to behave in ways that makes you question if you actually know this person or not. These should not be a surprise to you but you must hold to your integrity and faith in God that all things will work for the good. Someone is always watching whether you know it out not and we must be a great example for them.
