Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. – 1 Cor 16:8-9

Paul was not intimidated by adversaries; he was excited by the prospect of defeating them! He would not miss out on his chance to preach the gospel in a region with heavy opposition. Paul understood a simple truth: with opposition comes opportunity.

Don’t run from conflict; run to it. God has already given you the victory! Opposition is sometimes a sign that you are on the right track, and the enemy is trying to slow you down. So give him all you’ve got!


Father, give me the courage to tackle opposition head-on. I declare that I will not back down from tough situations in Jesus’ name. I know that every time I face conflict, I grow!
