Matt 26:67 Then they spat in His face and struck Him with their fists; and some [f]slapped Him in the face,(C)
"We all face bitter experiences... it is actually a blessing to be under-appreciated - Jesus was the most under appreciated Savior but those who had open hearts saw Him for who he is and this is a growing experience, as frustrating as it might be. God will vindicate you if you just leave it in His hands and soak in His presence as much as you can, and the bitterness will be replaced with His hand-print. "
This was a wonderful response I got from a fellow sister in my Christian Mom's forum. It was a great reminder that the work of a disciple is never easy. We will face trials, and hurts. We will be spat on and slapped in the face.
Discouragement is the devil's best weapon. He is out to destroy us and to make us grow weary...
Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
2 Thessalonians 3:13 But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.
I do not know what is to happen next, but I do know that God will guide us and that if we are patient, he will show us the way.
