Hebrews 12:3 — For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
I know there are plenty of times you wonder where I am in the midst of your circumstances. I assure you, I’m right here with you and I haven’t moved. Remember that you’re in a fallen world and even those who are believers are not all at the same place where you are. It’s a war between the flesh and the new man I’m creating you to be. Always choose the high road even though it’s much tougher… it’s where I’ve called you to be. The changes you’re seeing in yourself are evident… you sense and feel them. Daily choose to transform your mind in Christ and you’ll overcome the challenges, annoyances and temptations that come your way. Yes, even hostility from those you would never expect… You are becoming a different and better person, a new creation through these experiences. Sure, I have the ability to step in at any point in time and rectify the situation, but I choose not to intervene because I have the utmost confidence in who you are and who you are becoming. I know you can handle it.
