Facing Opposition

Posted on: 7-15-112017

“It may not always be easy, but being frustrated and unfulfilled due to being outside the will of God is more difficult than pressing through all the opposition in order to walk in His will.” Joyce Meyer

I think for most of us, it’s easy to decide that being in God’s will is the most difficult path we could possibly walk. We can convince ourselves that what He is asking is to do or not do is just beyond what we can do. We may believe that there are just too many obstacles in our path to accomplish what He has planned for us, and we can be sure there are people encouraging us to give up. And what do we do…we give up! What we fail to consider when we give up and step outside of His will is that ANYTHING outside of His will is going to end up infinitely worse than ANYTHING we could’ve faced in His will. We have to realize that outside of His will, we don’t have His protection, His strength, His resources, His power, and His hand guiding us. When we are in God’s will, we may face opposition from the world, but when we are outside His will, we will face opposition from Him. God will fight us to stay in His will where He knows we are safe and protected. He will battle us as long as it takes and as ferociously as it takes in order to bring us back to where we need to be. God is relentless in His pursuit of us…He will never let us go! The choices we make are ours and no matter what we choose, there will be difficulties and opposition. We just have to decide if we want to face opposition from the world or from God.
