It looks like things can never change and they will not, under your power. Your current situation may not obey you, but it will obey ME. A leader is needed most in the darkness and in the most inopportune times.
Where sin abounds, MY Grace abounds much more. You are called to the chaos and your gift is most needed within the confusion. Praying and rebuking the enemy has its place, but you are the answer, I have sent.
In you is the hope men are looking for and the light they can cling to. There is a beauty in standing firm during a trial, that is better than silver or gold. To be an example of long suffering is the only lesson that matters.
When men stand under pressure and reach for the anointing rather than compromise, then the people through this instance will be blessed. Not only was the Kingdom demonstrated it was honored in the highest form.
All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. Only let us live up to what we have already attained. Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.
