- - Stay Faithful To Fulfilling Your Calling:
If developments or circumstances beyond your control have caused you to leave or be removed from ministry functioning that God has called you to do, be aware that your calling to ministry from God is not cancelled by God even though you have gone through a rough time and your ministry functioning has ended.

Your calling to ministry from God remains valid and active for the remainder of your life, unless you have disqualified yourself in some manner (see v.27 in 1 Corinthians 9:22-27).

" ...let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us " (from Hebrews 12:1).

In the account described in John 21:1-17 after the crucifixion of Jesus, Peter and some of his fellow disciples had returned to their previous occupation of fishing (vv.1-3).

Jesus appeared to them and essentially said to Peter, "Peter, what are you doing out here - returning to your former occupation of fishing?  I called you out of that secular occupation and into ministry, so why are you abandoning that calling just because you encountered some setbacks in your ministry functioning?  If you truly love me, you will stay faithful to fulfilling the calling that I have on you - even when the going gets tough." (from vv.15-17).

If your are no longer able to secure or afford the same kind of ministry work that you were previously doing, then God may want you to shift to a slightly different kind of ministry work, but nevertheless your calling is still in effect.

Find some way to resume and continue doing ministry work, in obedience to God's calling on you.
___________________________

- - Expect Things To Get Worse:  
The amount of wickedness and evil in societies is growing exponentially in the world today, at a substantially escalating rate, particularly during the last decade.

Wickedness and evil have become emboldened, being practiced and promoted openly through the accommodating that avenues of various media platforms provide
(Romans 1:32).

The Kingdom of Darkness and its human cohorts are accomplishing new great victories for their agendas that promote depravity, and they are winning the war of evil versus good. 

Because the battle for us true believers in Christ is ultimately with the Kingdom of Darkness, consequently, the extreme hostile and confrontational polarization within societies between the agents of wickedness and the ambassadors of righteousness is expected, natural, and even inevitable as we true believers "take our stand against the devil's schemes" and labor to advance the righteousness of Christ, which simultaneously serves to confront and hinder the advancement of the degradation of societies
(Ephesians 6:11-13).

As we progressively draw closer to the 7-year Tribulation period during which God will bring widespread catastrophic judgment upon the wickedness of those humans living in that 7-year period, until then we can expect that conditions in societies will continue to degrade, proliferate, and accelerate toward ever-increasing open pervasive wickedness.

Thereby, expect proponents of wickedness to continue increasing the amount and intensity of their combativeness, hostility, deceptive claims, accusations, confrontations, and etc. against righteousness and, by extension, against us true believers in Christ, who stand up for righteousness
(Philippians 1:9-14).
