People be encouraged! The apostle Paul said at one point; “Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom.” (2. Timothy 4:18 NLT) What Paul was talking about was that he has “been beaten, been put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food.” (2. Corinthians 6:5 NLT) He also testified that he serves God whether people honor him or despise him, whether they slander him or praise him, or whether they call him an imposter. (See 2. Corinthians 6:8) Here is another powerful statement that Paul made: “We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.” (2. Corinthians 4:8-9 NLT) This tells me that, “if God is for us, who can ever be against us?” (Romans 8:31 NLT) and indeed that “no weapon formed against you shall prosper,” (Isaiah 54:17 NKJV) Yes, if God is for you, no matter what the devil tries, he will never be able to stop you! I myself am a living testimony of that, as you can see if you read my biography on our website:
