17 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. 18 But not a hair of your head shall be lost. Luke 21:17-18
You can’t stop folks from hating you but you can stop haters from caging your mind in the prison of bitterness, unforgiveness and revenge.
You will be hated not for who you are but of whom you are from. Our uncommonness from society through our union with Christ disturbs the agenda of Satan and he will always impress men to be hostile to your life and the purpose of God concerning you. It is sometimes funny and strange when Satan uses the very people who know scriptures against you. I am talking about Church folks and family members. You will be hated by all. By all, includes….you have already pictured them!
By your patience possess your souls. Luke 21:19
Your patient trust in God will deliver your mind from extreme pressures of anxiety, fear, loneliness and the frustration motivated by our haste to take matters into our own hands. Vengeance is God’s and not ours. The battle is the Lord and not ours. Patience will unleash unusual peace to prevail in your mind.
