Opposition can come at any time, when things are going good or bad. When we’re seeing change for the good and we know we’re doing what God wants us to do, that’s when the enemy tries to step in and oppose what we’re doing.
I’ve personally experienced a lot of this here recently. Something that you prayed for for a long time and your breakthrough happens, the enemy will try anything and everything to defeat you in in that area or another area of your life.
The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy, he will do his best to bring doubt, fear, and insecurity into your mind and heart. Thats why it’s so important to renew our minds. Know the word, speak the word, let it get on the inside of you so when the enemy comes at you with his lies you speak back to him and put him in his place!
A wide door is open for great work but there are many adversaries. 1 Corinthians 16:9
When you step out and do what God wants you to do, don’t think the devil will roll out a red carpet for you and say “Go ahead, do what what you’re called to do.”
Ohhh no he won’t!! He will try to come at you any way possible to keep you from doing whatever it is, so stand your ground! Y’all talk back to the devil! He is a defeated foe!
He’s sneaky and knows your weak areas where he can get to you. It could be through people, your health, finances, your job, your spouse/family. Whatever it is KNOW this, he is only trying to distract you from doing whatever it is you are called to do.
Remember “We war not against flesh and blood….”
I have let him distract me and gotten swallowed up by his tactics at different times in my life but at least I can say they are becoming shorter and shorter times. I’m realizing what’s going on and you can too. We can’t be moved by what we see, we call those things that be not as though they are. Stop focusing on the problem or situation, lift your eyes to Jesus.
He’s the Author and Finisher of our faith. He WILL perfect that which concerns us, we just have to keep our eyes on Him instead of what’s going on around us, all those distractions.
So when opposition/enemy is coming against you begin praising and declaring the goodness of God.
Put on the whole Armor of God!
He is for YOU, not against you. He will fight your battles, all you need to do is trust and have faith in Him that he has it and REST in his presence. He loves you precious one and sees what the enemy is trying to do, NOTHING gets by Him.
Declare the goodness and glory of God in your situation and have faith that He is working ALL THINGS, NOT SOME, BUT ALL THINGS OUT FOR YOUR GOOD and NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU WILL PROSPER! Amen!
