Contradictions in This Season

Here are my meditations this morning: Pursuing the LORD and doing His will is not without challenges, chief of which is the *parallel increase in impact and opposition.* While things are working to the glory of the LORD, there is also a measure of resistance to God’s will happening at the same time.
