Everyone on a mission will face opposition. Your
purpose is the reason for your being; that panacea inside you to a problem the
world needs badly to solve. Do not allow anything or person to stop you.

Just as happened to the Sower in the parable of Jesus,
whenever you sow good seed, your close monitor the enemy, is bound to show up
to sow tares in your field. He is like a roaring lion, looking everywhere for
whom to devour. Having been cast out of heaven to the earth, the enemy, enraged
that he cannot prevail against the woman, continues to make war with the
remnant of her seed, those who keep the commandments of God and have the
testimony of Jesus ChristRev.12:1-17.
Believers are at war.

Watch out for the machinations of the devil with
particular regard to your relationships. The enemy will try to deceive you [‘serpent’]
or to hurt you [‘scorpion’], to
destroy
your fellowship with God-appointed associates. No one is without fault; offence may
come, conflict may arise, but you keep the peace1Thess.5:13.
The closer you get to a person, the more about him you discover. What you know
is what you need to help with.Practise the
principle of reciprocity therefore pray for, rather than gossip about your helper.You cannot gain from whom you despise. Do not abuse access or take favour for
granted.

You already have power ‘to trample on serpents and scorpions, andover all the power of
the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.’
Lk.10:19.
You must develop sensitivity in the spirit – a function of constant fellowship
with the Spirit of God that lives in you – so that you can use the authority given
to counter the enemy’s devices against you.

Guard your heart from the enemy within.Protect
your mind and imagination2Cor.10:5.
Never entertain negative or limiting thoughts that may truncate your glorious
destiny. Adversity is temporary; do not lower your standards to accommodate it.
Protect your dreams like a woman does her pregnancy; fight against any spoilers.
Time is precious; do not waste it or be distracted; the
world awaits your manifestationRom.8:19.
