12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12-13, ESV)
A Soldier should not be surprised to find someone shooting at him. It is the nature of our business. In the same way, Christians should expect to engage the enemy. The evil one is constantly testing your defenses and looking for weaknesses. So keep you guard up and fight hard!
Prayer: Lord, defend me.
