Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you.
1 Peter 4:12
We are not to think it is strange when the enemy comes against us with fiery trials. We are not to see this as something unusual because he is evil and he doesn’t “like us. As a matter of fact, he hates us because we have dominion over the Earth and, as children of God, we bring the presence of God wherever we go. We release the power of the Holy Ghost and shut the devil out! If we see the devil or his demons doing something, in the authority of Jesus’ name we get rid of them. Therefore, he is going to do everything he can do to stop us. “As a born-again child of God the devil has no spiritual hold on you anymore, but he still has access to your soul. And your soul is where you make decisions. Therefore, he does everything he can to get control of your soul. If he can get control of your soul he can thwart the purposes of God in your life and affect the lives of everyone around you for evil instead of “good.
There are many ways the enemy will come at you, and you need to guard your heart and mind from these strategies and traps. He can use other people or circumstances to snare you, but if you are not ignorant of his devices and your mind is renewed to the truth, you can keep from being deceived and led astray.”

“If you study history and learn about all the true leaders, their examples defy the traditional thinking about the charismatic leader.
God frequently used people whom others would dismiss, who were not perfect to do great things. Moses had a stammering tongue. No charisma. God said, “Tell you what. You’re in charge of a million people.”
Many questions remain about what kind of impediment Moses had, but obviously it had something to do with his speech because he complained to God.
Exodus 4:10–12 “10 Moses said to the Lord, “O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”
11 The Lord said to him, “Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”
The discourse came to a climax when he suggested that God send someone else to do his work. God said something like, “I am quite aware of what you can and cannot do. As a matter of fact, I have something to do with it as the Creator.”
God did not heal Moses. That is important. Instead, He explained to Moses why He would not heal his impediment. He replied, “Even now your brother Aaron is on the way. He will be your mouth. If I were to heal you, Aaron wouldn’t have a purpose in life.” Moses always had his impediment, and Aaron always had a job. Exodus 4:15–16
15 “You shall speak to him and put words “in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. “16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him.”
Everything that you lack as a human is someone else’s purpose. If we could do everything, then we would not need anybody else. The Creator did not make anything insignificant. Every plant needs the sun, fish need water, and human beings need other human beings. Each brings something to serve humanity. That is why servant leadership is so important, because it helps you constantly appreciate the value of people, and it also protects you from trying to devalue them by attempting to become all things and to do everything yourself. Everybody is a leader. That is the heart of God. Leadership is inherent.”
“I WILL bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord ; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord , and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried out, and the Lord heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the Lord , you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing . Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord . Who is the man who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked, And those who hate the righteous shall be condemned. The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.”
