"There is going to be resistance. And as Satan is antagonizing us, we are to look to Christ. Look how He endured the opposition that came to Him. Peter says, 'Do not think it strange if fiery trials come upon you.' Whatever happened to Jesus is going to happen to us. It is as simple as that. Because we are following His steps and His Spirit is leading us down the same path. But He is the One who sustains us. We do not walk it on our own. Physically we become weak and weary. Mentally we become weak and weary. Emotionally we become weak and weary. But spiritually, the Spirit of Christ sustains us through our weakness, in spite of our weakness, and through the hardships of life. He gives us the ability to remain under, and learn to trust Him, and to run the race."
