Today I would like to share with you 1st Corinthians 16:9,13-14, “For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.” At times we will come against obstacles that will challenge us. I have found this happens because the Lord wants to stretch us and teach us how to walk in faith. The enemy brings obstacles against us because we become effective for the kingdom of God. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of our testimony and the love of the Lord. Overcome evil with love. My challenge to you is to pray that you hold steadfast close to the Lord. Depending on the obstacle you may find this easy or extremely difficult, but the Lord will win the victory. In my own life I have learned to trust the Lord through every obstacle. The love of Jesus has held me strong, may He do the same for you.
