Whatever it is that God has called you to do; I strongly suggest you do it. There are many that will oppose you as it relates to your ministry. However, you must always bear in mind that at the day of Judgment/Reckoning you will have to explain to the Creator of all things what did you do with the tools he gave you to accomplish the purpose he'd place you on the earth to do.
Trust me, everyone will have an opinion as it relates to your ministry and for the most part it will be negative. In fact, the folks that will challenge you, unfortunately will be those that claim to be on your team (Christians). Nevertheless, when we take a closer look at Jesus' Ministry it was never the sinner or Roman soldiers that challenged him, instead it was the Pharisees, Sadducee, scribes, Judas Iscariot, which were all, "fellow believers" and leaders of the church.
I would like to speak to that person tonight that feels hopeless, tired, inadequate, and wary by the negative comments of others but more importantly their fellow Christian brothers and sisters. First and foremost, those that challenges you or speaks negatively about your ministry, DID NOT CALL YOU TO MINISTRY! It is God and not nay Sayers that you will have to give an account to at the end of the day. Secondly, you should be more concerned about pleasing the one that sent you instead of those that knows very little of the Holy Spirit that resides in you and instructing you. Thirdly, relish on the fact that God is working through you to bring change in the lives of those around you.
I would use myself as an example, there are many that say, "Why is he always talking about witchcraft or spiritual warfare, dreams interpretation etc, why don't he talk about something else". My answer is simple, "Take it up with God". Secondly, spiritual warfare is my branch of ministry it is this ministry that I will be judged on. Thirdly, should I follow the instructions of mere mortals or God? And lastly, why am I a concern to you? Focus on your own ministry because you to will have to give an account.
Trust me on this, stay in the lane that God has called you to minister in, because the same folks that are attempting to discredit you or influencing you to change your ministry to what area they think you ought to be ministering in will continue to challenge you even if you set out to please them. Puppets allow the noise in the market to pull their strings. People of God focus on the next instruction of their journey from God and not man!
I am always amazed when I read emails from all over the world as to how some writing or teaching I did change the course of someone's life or made them look at things from a different prospective. Believe me, the devil and his human agents will come at you from every angle trying to convince you that you're wasting your time, God did not call you, people are not interested in what you have to say etc, etc.
I do not know who you are but you need to get back up on your horse and continue your journey to the finish line, focusing on the assignment that God has given you. Everyone has to give an account for the gifts God has outfitted them with, to do his will in the earth. How others decide to use their tools if they use them at all will have to be explained on the Day of Judgment.
Get up, refresh yourself and keep going forward for there are many souls frustratingly waiting what God has placed in you to bring about their deliverance.
