Know That Afflictions Will Come!
As you walk in obedience to the LORD you will encounter attacks against your life, family, finances, ministry and mind.
The enemy will try all he knows to get you to stop obeying the LORD, because he knows your obedience is pleasing to the LORD.
Often we are hit on every side by fiery darts to frustrate us in our obedience, so that we will rebel against what God is calling us to do.
Make sure you are suited up spiritually for the warfare that comes with your yes.
Know that afflictions will come. Attacks will appear, but God is able to bring you through every storm, because He is your source of strength through it all.
Stand strong and be encouraged. You will make it through the battles and come out of all attacks Victorious!
Beware of the Hidden Agendas
Many times, people connect because of the anointing on your life.
But when they realize that your walk and relationship with God is truly holy and righteous and that you are requiring the same thing from them, and that you won’t compromise with the sin, iniquities and issues in their life, they turn on you.
Often people see how God uses you, or recognize the favor of God on your life, and they draw to that, not truly looking for somebody to help them get to their destiny, but just somebody to help them get what they need.
When you begin to correct their behavior and speak to them about character and attitude, they often rise up like a snake and attack you for not allowing them to continue to walk in a ungodly unrighteous way.
They will speak evil of you and come against you, disputing you, arguing with you and challenging you, because they don’t want to acknowledge that they truly need deliverance.
So often, people connect just to get validation through your relationship, but not to get approval from God.
Know that they will start out sweet until they realize that you see their motives and heart!
Stand your ground and know that God will weed out those that have impure motives and hidden agendas!
