Paul and Barnabas are nearing the end of their first missionary journey. As in all the previous cities on their journey, they meet up with some stiff opposition—resulting in the stoning of Paul in Lystra. Left for dead, Paul had a decision to make—he had to decide whether to give it all up because it was just too hard, or respond with joy and courage in the face of persecution. When faced with difficulties and trials of our own, we too face this decision. Will we choose to remember that God is in control of all our circumstances?
