We must also prepare ourselves for trials and the temptations from the devil because they will happen. When they do use the Word of God and the power of prayer to stand firm.
So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into. You also must be ready all the time, for The Son of Man will come when least expected. Matthew 24:42-44
