A Kingdom Leader can find himself in the middle of many skirmishes and battles. Those situations can require that a leader take a stand. It takes great discernment and tact to have the wisdom, courage, and the will to stand.
Which battle would Jesus choose? The end times will be typical of false teachers, lawlessness and a turning away from God and His values. There will be a total rebellion against God's laws.
Daniel was one faithful follower of the Lord. He lived his life in a difficult place, under ungodly leadership, and faced many issues in his life. Despite the circumstances he faced Daniel was highly esteemed in heaven.
Daniel 10:19 (ESV)
19 And he said, o“O man greatly loved, pfear not, peace be with you; be strong and of good courage.” And as he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”
Remember that the Lord will strengthen you at the appropriate time. Trust in Him. Be strong and have good courage. He knows what you face. Let us encourage one another.
