One of the vital keys to your success on this earth is to know the will of God for your life and then to stick closely to what He has revealed to you. If you hold fast to the plan as God gave it to you, you position yourself to access a continual supply of His power, provision, and protection. Of course, your obedience to God doesn’t guarantee you a trouble-free life. For one thing, Paul himself wrote, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). You will always have to stay alert to thwart the attacks of an enemy who continually looks for ways to derail or discourage you as you seek to fulfill what God has asked you to do. And as you pursue the assignment He has given you, the threat of calamity or danger can never be the measuring rod of your obedience to His plan for your life.
