I know you’ve been there thousands of times
I know you’ve been there thousands of times and you wondered “no matter how hard I try I always end up back at the Starting Gate“.
This is not a motivational blog… this is a Blog about reality, about why you find it difficult to move from point A to point B. I realize that your intentions are good, that you have prayed about it and that The Word of God is in your heart.
I know that you have all the faith you need to get the job done, but for some reason you never reach your destination.
You’ve prepared, you fasted and prayed. You’re doing this because you know that God wants to answer your prayer…that He has called you to this.
there is a force out there that is hell-bent on stopping you
But you must be aware there is a force out there that is hell-bent on stopping you and that force is satan.
Why do you think satan chose the woman to attack and deceive? Do you think it was because she was stupid? Weak? NO! He chose the woman because he saw that she was the biggest threat to him. And he thinks the same thing about you.
This little Enterprise that you have started… rather it be getting up a half hour early every day to pray or witness to more people when you’re out and about. Perhaps you want to reach out and help people in a professional manner? Maybe you want to counsel people to help them out of their difficulties. You’ve stirred things up in the spirit realm. You’ve started an all out war.
Just by attempting such a thing paints a Target on your back
Just by attempting such a thing paints a Target on your back, and you must realize that. satan has limited resources, remember two-thirds of the Angels did not fall with satan so he only has one third and he is going to hit you with everything he has. He simply cannot allow you to undo what he has done.
He sees what you are capable of, he sees what you are able to do. And if he can stop you from realizing that then he doesn’t have to be concerned about you pulling people out of hell and helping to knit their lives back together.
Quitting is the last thing to do! I say again quitting is the last thing you want to do.
Now I realize that every time you fail at something that you thought God had told you to do you think it’s something that you did wrong. But what if you did nothing wrong? What if you did everything you were supposed to do?
Spiritual warfare isn’t something that you become efficient at overnight. Remember that you do have the weapons of your Warfare, and they are complete and given to you by God.
2 Corrinthians 10:4
The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.
But this battle is in a specific place and you must know where it is if you are going to fight this battle effectively.
If you will stick with me, the other side of this blog is coming up in about a week. That is when the real fun begins
