It is tough being a Christian. Everyday, you are in war with the enemy. This is because when you become closer to God, Satan works overtime to destroy that relationship.
"the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is the son of Remaliah. If you do not stand firm in your faith, then you will not stand at all."
Being a Christian does not mean that you will live a life in a bed of roses. It means that even if you undergo trials in life, you will still trust the Lord and believe that He is in control.
So if you feel like giving up, Stand Up! You are part of God's army. Face the enemy with confidence because God is on your side.
Onward Christian Soldier! God bless you!
