Before, the breakthrough comes a major storm.
Have you ever wondered why all hell may be breaking loose in your life when your at the cusp of a positive change? I often wonder the same thing however, we know that mankind has an adversary that never sleeps and does his best to work through situations and people to make sure that we do not persevere or enjoy God’s deliverance for our lives. 1 Peter 5:8 this lion: “Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
This type of hell that is breaking loose in our lives before major breakthroughs or at the cusp of it is called spiritual warfare. Spiritual warfare is a battle between good and evil that occurs in the spiritual realm. As people of God, this is something that we must endure which strengthens our faith in Christ and builds up our spiritual armor. 1 John 5:4 “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”
The types of attacks that people of God endures from the enemy is never easy. Many times it makes you want to throw your hands up and say to the Lord, “God why me?” What have I done to deserve this?” It is not that we deserve anything perhaps through your light the enemy for sees that you will start a business in which you will employ many people, change the economy and bring many out of poverty or perhaps the Lord will send you that Kingdom spouse that you have been waiting for who will help you start that ministry and lead many souls to Christ.
Whatever, is your God given destiny, the enemy wants to make sure that he pulls the rug from under your feet to stop your destiny because he is threatened by your purpose and he knows that your God ordained assignment can dismantle his dark kingdom. Isaiah 41:10, “So do not Fear, for I am with You; do not be dismayed, for I am Your God. I Will Strengthen You and Help You; I Will Uphold You with My Righteous Right Hand.”
There is no need for us to become discouraged when spiritual attacks occur at the cusp of our breakthroughs because the Lord, has already went before us and won the war. Keep walking with the Lord, with your head held high, stay in prayer, continue to fast and display your faith as strong as a mustard seed. Don’t lose heart when the going gets tough, just know that God is with you and he is going through the fire with you. It takes fire to refine gold and transform it into something beautiful.
We are God’s creation and more precious to him than gold. So, take heart good people and do not lose your faith.
I hope this article blesses many people and encourages many to strengthen their faith in Christ Jesus
