Opposition comes at us in many ways.
Opposition can come through people.
People can be rude, gossip, complain, give you their "not helpful or not needed opinion"; and worst of all, people will disappoint or throw us off our game. When this happens, we can doubt or question ourselves, our motives and plans.
The enemy wants opposition to cause us to quit, give up and jump off the boat! But If we jump off the boat, we don't even get a chance to walk on the water! God wants opposition to create in us perseverance, an attitude of resilience, a reminder for us to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and to prompt us to seek Him for all our needs and strength!
When opposition comes at you; and it will! Don't cower or get discouraged; press through it with a mindset that you refuse to give up, knowing that God will get you through it and remember that you are living to please God and not man! "Obviously, I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant."
Say this with me, and mean it!
"Today, I will not give up or quit. I will stay focused on my goals. I will exercise, eat healthy, love my family, forgive others, keep writing, stay at my job, stay married, love my spouse, be kind to the rude neighbor, pursue my dreams, walk in my calling and nobody is going to stop me in Jesus name!" Amen! (And you can fill in whatever you need above to make it personal to you!)
"I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us." (Philippians 3:14)

When I was just five years old, I was kidnapped and forced to live a life burdened with cruel and bizarre physical and emotional abuse. My will to survive, inspired by an invisible hope, helped me fight the demons and stay alive.
