At my first defence, no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them. But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also, I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen! II Timothy 4:16-18 NKJV

Just as God has chosen you in Christ to accomplish His purpose on earth through you and He’s determined to keep and preserve you till you reach home eventually. Satan, likewise is very much concerned about you, to sift you like wheat and make a nonsense out of you.

However, as long as you remain in Jesus and you take heed to His Word always with your eyes focused on the goal set before you, the Lord will stand by you, stand with you and arm you with the strength to withstand every trick of the Devil anytime, any day and anywhere. You will surely accomplish the purpose for which He has apprehended you in Christ Jesus eventually.

Therefore, take heart! The battle though appears tough now will not belong. You are not alone, the LORD God Almighty is with you and you are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ. May God help you to be found always in Christ with His word in your heart and your mouth in Jesus’ name. Have a lovely day.

Your brother,
