Your circumstances don’t define who you are, God does..
When Paul, the apostle, went to his Christian brothers and sisters, to start a church, he did not receive a warm welcome. He tells of “making every effort,” trying “again and again,” for them see God’s “glory and joy.” (1 Thessalonians 2:17-20)
Clearly he wanted to minister to his friends in Christ. Satan used circumstances to block him From going forward. Obviously Paul was successful in the end because he persevered.
Satan also tries to block us with difficulties. Serving others is not always comfortable, but Jesus calls us to do it in spite of the challenges.
