God has not forgotten you, nor has he gone back on any one of his promises to you. You may have experienced unanticipated detours, unwarranted attacks, unpredictable delays, unrealistic expectations, unexpected failures, unnecessary interruptions, unfathomable heartache or undeniable opposition —but that does not mean the purpose of God will not come to pass in your life. All of the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ Jesus.

If your reputation is perfectly intact on every front, if you never irritate anyone, if you never make a stir, you might be doing something wrong – or more likely, you’re not doing something right. “Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for in the same way their fathers used to treat the false prophets” (Luke 6:26). The Bible has a crystal clear promise: All who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Tim. 3:12). If we never experience persecution, if we never make a single soul angry (as Christ often did), something is probably wrong.
