At my first defense, 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, reduce you to a mere chaff, 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 God will also not forsake you. He will always stand by you, stand with you, and arm you with the strength and wisdom to withstand every trick of the Devil anytime, any day, and anywhere. With His unfailing backup, you will surely accomplish the purpose for which He has apprehended you in Christ Jesus eventually.

Therefore, take heart, brace up in hope with loins girdle with righteousness. The battle though appears tough now will not be long and you are not alone in it. The LORD God Almighty is with you and you are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ.

As you set out this week, be assured the Lord Jesus is with you to deliver you and rescue you from every evil work. He will silence every opposition against you, and dismantle every roadblock; human, satanic, institutional, and systemic mounted on your way to prevent you from reaching heaven’s utmost height for your life in Jesus’ name. Good morning and do have a fruitful week.

Your brother,
