Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, Yet Your commandments are my delights. Psalm 119:143 New King James Version
It ain’t easy being a Christian.
You are going against the tide.
As such you can expect to experience a lot of ridicule, prejustice, and hostility including from your own family.
When I was in China many Chinese who became Christians were completely cut off from their families. If they went back home they were ridiculed, ostracized and even suffered violence by their own families. At school and work no one will even talk with them and they are constantly ridiculed. They had truly given up everything for Christ.
I wonder how many Christians in the west would suffer like that?
When you become a Christian Satan is not going to celebrate he is going to attack and the closer you get to Christ the more the attacks and the more severe they are. Joseph- Anthony: Green
“Jesus hath many lovers of His heavenly Kingdom, but few bearers of His Cross. He hath many desirous of consolation, but few of tribulation. Many love Jesus so long as no adversities befall them.” — Thomas à Kempis
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (God of our peace) for blessing me with Your divine strength, peace and wisdom to withstand the attack that satan throws at me and for the most delightful experience of helping me be an obedient child to the One who loves me with a divine love. I praise You in the name of He who showed me Your most beautiful love Jesus Christ Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
