The Current Is Strong Be Careful
Spiritually speaking I’m somewhere I’ve never been before. With every faith step forward I can feel the invisible forces of the enemy. Nothing is coming easy, yet God is doing so much. I can feel it in my bones. I can see it with my eyes. However, the current of resistance is so strong it’s taking my legs out from underneath me, knocking the breath out me and leaving my head spinning.
By now some reading this are wondering if I’ve not been drinking just a little too much. Actually, I have been drinking something it’s called the Holy Spirit. I’m literally living by every word God puts on my heart. No matter how I feel or how much the pain. I’ve surrendered my very being to seeking and doing the will of God.
Now, if you are seeking to do the same you must understand a few things. One, the enemy is not going to give up easily territory he has always owned. Secondly, it’s always easier to flow with the crowd versus taking up your cross and walking with Jesus against the current. Finally, know that anytime you’re close to a spiritual breakthrough satan is going to raise the intensity level. Keep your eyes on Jesus not your circumstances. Keep praying, believing in God’s promises, and staying the course God has marked out for you. Because anytime you’re seeking to live boldly for Christ on the frontlines the current will always be strong. But, it doesn’t mean victory is not right ahead.
“Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” 2 Timothy 3:12
