Matthew 3:1-3> “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near. ” The prophet Isaiah was speaking about John when he said, “He is a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord ’s coming! Clear the road for Him!’” NLT
As Saints of God, you must be peculiar, bold, and radical for God like John to help lead others to Christ. The Saints of God have to be a voice crying out in this wilderness and wild world that we live in. Saints of God must tell people to repent and accept Jesus because the Kingdom of God is near. Jesus tells us in Mark 1:14-15 (NKJV),Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”

PHILIPPIANS 4:7> And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. AMP
As believers in Christ, we must have the mind of Christ. With the mind of Christ, we have a new way of thinking. God gives us clear directions on the things we should now think on. God says, "Finally, believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in Me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you."PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9 AMP.

ISAIAH 40:29> He gives strength to the weary, And to him who has no might He increases power.AMP PART 2
God goes on further to encourage us in times of weakness saying," That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT
We must hold fast and trust in God's Word at all times and God will give us strength.

Mark 4:16-17> And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution arise for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.
When you decide to walk by faith, you don't get rid of trials. You learn to overcome them. Let the Word of God get down into your heart, the devil is going to do his best to see to it that the Word is unfruitful in you. You'll have problems, but the difference is now you have the answer—the Word of God. Just as Jesus did when Satan tried to come at Him in Matthew 4. Thank God, however, through Christ Jesus you have the power to defeat Satan. Don't let the devil steal the Word out of my heart. Read it and meditate on it walk by it in faith and allow it to take root inside you.
