If you can be offended,
you will be.
If you can be discouraged by circumstances,
those circumstances will happen.
If you can be stopped,
roadblocks will appear,
If you can be turned from following Christ,
all the forces of Hell will cooperate to determine the location of your u-turn.
So, let your heart be decided,
your soul dependent on His strength,
and your mind fully armored for His service.
I Corinthians 15:58 – Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
II Peter 3:17 – Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
