Nobody ever said being a follower of Christ and living the life He desires us to live would be easy. Afterall, look at the way He was received during His 33 years in human form.
That being said, we are provided with all the help we need to do as He leads us. He promised to never leave us. We simply need to BE His, to BE focused on Him and to BE at peace. He gives us all we need including His armor, so why do we look at the evil coming at us and not use what He has given us?
