February 17

In the Face of Discouragement and Ridicule 

"…He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6

One evening I overheard my father and a friend of our family talking. The friend said, "What's Adrian going to do when he gets out of high school?" My dad replied, "Well, he wants to go off to college and study to be a preacher." That man just laughed and said, "He won't make it. He'll never stick it out. He'll quit." 

This was a man I admired and respected very much. I almost felt like crying. That's what the world says about Christians: "They won't stick it out. They won't make it." You see, the devil hasn't changed his tactics. He's still mocking and throwing cold water on our walks with the Lord. 

Get ready. If you don't feel the flames of ridicule now, just wait. 

Have you ever told someone that they wouldn't amount to anything? Has anyone ever told you that? Send those lies back to the pit of hell and rest in the promises of His Word that you are deeply loved and bought with the price of the Savior's own blood.
