The message was very clear. . .the Lord said to me:
“My children must not feel threatened, but they must listen to and obey my Word.”
Then in a very special moment. . .He led me to Acts 20:24 in the Amplified Bible which says:
“But none of these things move me; neither do I esteem my life dear to myself, if only I may finish my course with joy and the ministry which I have obtained from [which was entrusted to me by] the Lord Jesus, faithfully to attest to the good news (Gospel) of God’s grace (His unmerited favor, spiritual blessing, and mercy).”
Here are seven things you should realize when you feel threatened.
1. None of these things shall move me
The Apostle Paul was not moved by a shipwreck.
He was not moved by being beaten.
He was not moved by being imprisoned.
He was not moved by being persecuted.
He was not moved by being publicly humiliated.
He was not moved by the criticism of people with less education and knowledge.
He was not moved by a snake wrapping itself around his hand.
