"You need to understand whom I consider successful. Look in My Word. I came against the proud and exposed the haughty. Observe the life of Jesus. His humble presence frightened those who thought they had My heart figured out. I did things My way and confounded those who thought they were wise. They lost control. Most of My really successful people died in the arenas, lost their possessions for My sake, and touched others from prison.
"Those who would not be taught My ways judged those who were walking in them. It is the same today. Soon, however, that will change. I am raising up a holy bride in the midst of My church.

Even though it seems that taking a strong stand for Jesus, striving to be more like Him as your priority in life, and living a crucified life is a little thing; it is not little in the eyes of the Lord. You are in training. You are being prepared.
