when you decide to live for God, you will be challenged. just the same as when David prepared to fight Goliath, he was immediately criticized. his brother questioned his motives and cussed him of pride. but david remained bold in The Lords strength and continued to do what was right. there may come a time in your life where you are simply trying to be faithful, witnessing to others, and following Gods will for your life when criticism and challenges will come your way. even when everyone seems to be against you remember that david stood in the midst of war and God have him the victory. don’t allow criticism to discourage you, we’ve all had to deal with some kind of challenges – keep your focus on God and pleasing Him. what you accomplish for Christ is all that will matter when you stand before him in heaven one day!!
