No matter how hard we try to live in peace and show God's love, there are times when we are bound to run into resistance. There will be people that do not understand our motivation. They may question us and even attack us. While these enemies may puff themselves up, we shouldn't become deflated!
God is with us. When we are living and striving to follow Him, He will protect us, He will fight for us, and He will strengthen us. Our enemies may appear to be making progress against us, but we can have faith. We can know that if our enemies are "puffed up," it is only temporary. Our victories in God will be eternal and we will never be deflated!
Stand with God and have faith that He will provide eternal victories!
Thank You for helping me to stand all, even in the face of "puffed up" enemies. Help me to always have faith and rely on Your eternal strength and power. In Jesus I pray, amen.
