2 Timothy 1:3-7 ESV:

3 I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. 4 As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. 5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

God has not positioned you for normal. He has appointed you for signs, wonders and miracles. You are his chosen instrument to bring the light of His kingdom into a victorious clash with the darkness around you. Is it any wonder the enemy is set on taking you out? He knows who God created you to be, and he fears it. But rest in this, friend. Long before you were ever targeted by the enemy you were chosen by God!
