Title: The enemy of despair
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. – 1 Corinthians 15:58
Despair is one of the fiercest enemies to conviction. It looks at us as fools and calls us to retreat and give up. It is a persistent knock on the heart of every man…especially those who have taken a stand.
Your stand may leave you feeling abandoned. It may cost you more than you accounted for. But it will be worth it. Your work for the Lord will pay off. It might not see the pay off today…but you will see it.
Real men take a stand in the face of despair.
