Don’t Back Down When Facing Trials
Pastor Palitha Jayasooriya is a leader at the People’s Church (Assembly of God) situated in Colombo, Sri Lanka and the author of The Preaching Platform. In this short video he offers encouragement in the face of adversity, using the example of Daniel in the Lions’ Den.
When trials come our way, we must never back down. As Ephesians 6:13 says: “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” We have to keep standing in the face of fiery trials, just like Daniel in the Lion’s Den. He refused to compromise or give up and God supernaturally closed the mouths of the lions, preserving his life and giving him an extraordinary testimony to share.
If the devil comes to you as a roaring lion, introduce him to the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. If he comes as the king of the beasts show him the King of Kings. Remember the righteous are as bold as a lion and as you trust in Jesus he will not fail you, so keep standing and don’t back down.
Keep trusting God to deliver you from all the trials the enemy may bring, through His supernatural power!
