Pastor Evan Brown shares a personal story to illustrate the truth that we will face trouble and resistance in life when we press into the things of God. Yet we can have hope during difficult times knowing we will gain strength, and reap great spiritual blessing, when we break through and press in against any resistance to submit to God. Sometimes the barriers are great, and we are tempted to shrink back. Yet through faith we can rely on the power of the Holy Spirit and the truth of the scriptures to confidently come into the presence of God during difficult times and experience the life He has intended for us to live. Scripture readings are from Hebrews 10:19-11:1.
