“Fear not, daughter of Zion.” John 12:15
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation.” Zechariah 9:9
“The LORD has taken away your judgments, He has cast out your enemy. The King of Israel, the LORD, is in your midst; you shall see disaster no more.” Zephaniah 3:15
“Indeed they shall surely assemble — but not because of Me. Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake.” Isaiah 54:15
“Let them return to you — but you must not return to them.” Jeremiah 15:19
However strong your spiritual enemies may be now, fear not and be not discouraged. Your King is bound by His office, love, and promise to help you with strength to overcome.
Even the hardships of a Christian work together for his good in this world and brighten his crown of glory in the world to come. Too often, instead of casting and leaving a burden on the Lord by faith at once, we parley with temptation and undertake to heal ourselves by a thousand false contrivances, the effect of which is to make a conflict long that might have been short (2 Chronicles 16:7-9).
Lord, give me grace to be watchful and to keep on the armor of faith, that as I pass from conflict to conflict, I may pass on conquering, and to conquer, daily pressing forward, and every hour rejoicing in Christ, my mighty King and Savior. Gracious Redeemer, scatter my foes, fire my zeal, and make me more than a conqueror!

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
