The Bible says that Saul sought David every day, but God did not deliver David into Saul’s hands.1 Samuel 23.14
Sometimes we want to try and analyse why enemies continue to chase innocent. Saul would never have stopped trying to hurt David if he (Saul) didn’t die in battle.
Having said that God’s grace was in operation, but God wants us to grow in these seasons so He can take us to new levels.
I know the attacks are real and crazy, but God’s amazing grace is greater that any attack we can ever face, but we have to play our part.
In other words, we are co – labouring with Grace. God’s grace is at work, likewise us,- pressing deeper into the knowledge of the Mighty God that we serve.
What we have to realize is God’s uses our enemies for His (God) purpose. The enemy thinks he is in control, absolutely not. Look at the life of Job; God asked Satan had he considered my servant Job.
When the training is completed, lessons learned for the season the attacks will stop.
I used the word season because; the attacks are needed to keep us on our toes. Some might disagree, but we are hotter when we are engaged in spiritual warfare, as compared to when we have no attacks at all.
This should be understandable as we have two natures – Spirit and Flesh, however, when those attacks are coming day after day and night after night, we can’t afford to be in the flesh.
The attacks do have some benefits, even if we don’t want to admit it, they keep us humble, watchful, and on fire (hot) and these characters are requirements for partnership with God. God wants us hot most of the time, if not all the time.
When we are hot we can do exploits, In the Book of Daniel, Chapter 11:32 …reads, those that know their God will be strong and do exploits.
Our spirit needs must be trained to a higher place, for the anointing of God to manifest.
I am not there yet,( still pressing in) but I believe the power God’s wants us to operate in is mind blowing.
We have heard the stories of the past generation, how they flowed in the authority of God, but it’s a new day, and it’s our time, why? The world is waiting for the manifestation of the Children of God.
Our spiritual life is like physical muscles, the more we train our muscles the more fit we become.
The football season in the UK is coming to an end in the next couple of weeks, and the players will get their well-deserved rest and a break. However, their fitness levels will not be the same as to when they are in the football season.
Likewise spiritual life, the attacks keep us spiritually fit, we don’t get complacent, and our Faith grows.
What we had Faith for a couple of weeks or months ago, if we do not maintain the same spiritual standard, we would not have the faith for something that is less in magnitude today.
So when the attacks come, let’s not say, oh why me, but on the other hand, we must say, it’s time to go higher, and who knows, our actions in FAITH and the POWER of God might just be the inspiration the next generation needs.
Until next time, keep Believing, Keep Hoping & Keep Loving.
