When you do what God wants you to do, there will be some tension in your life.  You cannot avoid it.  You will not know when it will come.  You will not know how it will come.  The only thing you can be sure of is that it will come.

Spiritual warfare is real.  It can be intense.  It can discourage you.  You may even think about giving in or giving up.  That’s what Satan wants you to do.  He wants you to be comfortable, or at least make you think you’re comfortable.  He does not want you do anything meaningful for God.  He does not want you to grow deeper in your love for God and other people.  He wants you to stay right where you are.

Spiritual warfare is great.  As the Egg Drop nears, you may find yourself in some intense battles.  If you find yourself in a situation that is not normal, take a moment and talk with God about it.  Doing what God’s will is not always easy.  But, it’s the only way to discover real joy and experience real spiritual growth.  Press on.  Don’t give up.  Look forward.  Anticipate the victory.  Celebrate.  God will not leave you.  He will not forsake you.  You are not alone.  The battle will end soon enough.  Until then, look to Jesus for comfort and joy!
