When we draw close to the Lord and choose to be His instrument, even with our struggles and imperfections, we must expect opposition and confusion. Despite the teaching and healing imparted by Jesus, He is accused of being insane (Mk. 3:20-21). If we share in the Lord’s pain and suffering, we shall also share in His joy and victory.
Lord Jesus, help us to persevere in doing Your will and revealing Your goodness all the days of our lives. May we never be daunted by the challenges we face, but take courage in Your love and grace. Amen.
