determinedI replied, “There is no truth in any part of your story. You are making up the whole thing.” They were just trying to intimidate us, imagining that they could discourage us and stop the work. So I continued the work with even greater determination. (Nehemiah 6:8-9 NLT)

The enemy loves to use lies to intimidate you imagining that he can discourage you and stop you from doing what God has called you to do. You need to be able to discern the voices in your life and know what is God and what is the enemy. Once you identify the enemy, pay no attention to the lies and continue your work with even greater determination! Be determined to continue!

Stephen’s Gate is a weekly devotion that purposes to encourage people to live the victorious life God has called them to. Stephen grew up in a Christian home and was raised in Church. As a young boy he was very shy and never wanted to be the center of attention, however, he always had the desire to preach and minister to others. God called him into ministry in his late twenties and he has enjoyed every minute of it. Stephen previously served as an Assistant Pastor in Fort Fairfield, Maine before moving to Georgia. Stephen and Kristen have been married for 11 years and have two beautiful girls, Abigail and Sydney.
