When we hear someone calling out to us, what is our first reaction?
When we encounter obstacles or resistance, we must discern between God's direction to keep us on the right path, and the resistance of evil trying to keep us from that path.
The path to life is narrow, and Jesus is the only way. However, upon accepting Him, we have great freedom and liberty to love and to serve both God and others.
We may sometimes feel that we're in a Tower Defense game, marching along a path as others attack us. Whatever the perils, though, we can find a defender in God.
