It’s very easy to become discouraged by the things we see in this world. The world’s system has turned away from God completely and people rejoice at this.
Christians are seen as problematic; they are persecuted on the daily. But you, dear Christian (rejoicefor you are Christ-like – Christ-ian), should not be discouraged because God is always with you.
There will come a time where your name will be cleared and you will be free of the oppression you have faced on Earth.
And we pray:
Heavenly Father, I am grateful because I know that no matter what I face on this Earth, nothing will separate me from the Love You have for me. When I am mocked, insulted, or ostracized for choosing to follow You, though it may hurt me, I will not falter in my faith because Your Love is my strength. You supply me with the peace I need; You remind me of the glory to come. For with You, there is always a way. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
