Have you ever lost all that you ever cared about? Have you ever lost your home, your children, your possessions, your parents, your health, your money, your hope, and your reason for living? If you are born again you may survive such a blow only by the grace of God.
The good thing for a born again Christian if that ever happens to them they have the greatest reason for living built right inside of them so it is nearly impossible to give up because they don't live for themselves anyway.
Not if they have consecrated their lives unto God then their own will, desires, of ambitions will fall powerlessly surrendered to the Will of the Almighty Creator Jehovah God. Christians are supposed to learn to crucify the desires of the flesh and to choose God's ways instead of their own.
They say the poorest person in the world is the one who has to have a lot. And that the richest person in the world is the one who needs very little. And I know it is true just don't try to convince that to the daughter of Babylon!
But how would you feel if you knew that you had lost everything that you ever lived for except for Christ and then HE instilled a new dream, a new hope, a new future for your life and it would be that of HIS and not of your own.
How would you feel if then all that were true and someone tried to block you, stop you or prohibit you from fulfilling HIS purpose?
They say the worse kind of an enemy to fight is one who has nothing to lose. How much more worse is it to fight against the purposes or plans of God for one's life?
We should never interfere with God's plans for another persons life because their purpose maybe connected to your very survival.
