The devil tells you that you are a fool for trusting God. Don't let him just talk to you recklessly. Tell him that you will foolishly trust God, because God is in control of everything regarding your life. Tell him you don't mind being a fool for Jesus and that you can't go wrong trusting Him!
Don't get offended when people are mean and rude to you because they know you are a Christian. You are a target for nasty spirits when they know you are sold out for Christ! Keep serving Him and treat them as He treats you - with love, mercy and kindness.
God gives us a promise, but He doesn’t always tell us about what will happen in between times... the hardships, suffering and persecution that we may experience before the promise comes to pass. Brace yourself for it! The suffering doesn’t change God’s plan - it strengthens us for greatness!
Do you want to know how to deal with fake, phony, mean and difficult people that you will encounter on your Christian journey and yet be kind to them despite how they act? It is through humility! God gives grace to the humble. God’s grace makes you versatile; ready and able to shift under any circumstance.
Prayer is effective when we pray back to God what the scriptures says. God will not hold back on what He said He will do for us in His word! Yet many of us pray and omit reading and studying God’s holy word. His promises to us are found in the Bible, not in our feelings and imaginations. Begin today to be effective in prayer - read the scriptures and use it to pray!
