Satan has many tactics, the evil and bad are easy for the Kingdom Citizen to identify and avoid. Because you are wise to his tactics, the ones he is using now, are evil wrapped good packages, and they are coming like a flood to overwhelm you.
They are very hard to detect because all your believer friends are so excited, thinking I have sent them, and encouraging you to hurry up and open them.
Be very careful before you open any opportunities in this day of great deception. Yes, your phone is ringing off the hook, but I have not ordained all the calls. Satan knows how to use a phone too, and he has one objective and that’s to separate you and I.
Satan will stop at nothing to accomplish this. Before you answer any call you must ask Father to, “deliver me from the evil ones,” Matthew 6:13. You are on the look out for all the bad things and he knows it, so he is now going to counterfeit good things and wrap then in packages that look like answers to your prayers! Matthew 24:24.
In your excitement you will be tempted to just start opening each one, saying yes, without prayer. Watch out! some of them are filled with deadly poison. This poison will cut so deep into your time with Me because you will become entangled with this world’s affairs and no longer able to fight the good fight of faith, 2 Timothy 2:4.
You must spend more time praying over the good things than rebuking the bad things. To say no to what appears to be a good thing, is much harder that saying no to a bad thing!
Sure the offer means more money, satan also has a lot of money, to offer you! Matthew 4:8-9. Sure she is beautiful, satan is also appears as an angel of light, 2 Corinthians 11:14. Sure it’s a better neighborhood, but death is found in palaces too, Jeremiah 9:21.
Yes he’s just what you prayed for, and satan heard your prayer too, it could be the first guy is from hell and it’s the next one that’s from Me.
I AM not saying that it’s not from Me, but you must be sure! You must earnestly seek My face before you open any good looking package. Your life, your calling, your anointing, and your spiritual walk depend on it.
The package is important, but who sent it is more important! You need to see a spiritual stamp on every opportunity from now on, PRAY BEFORE OPENING.
“Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all manner of prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people),” Ephesians 6:18 AMP.
Bottom line: there is nothing to big or small to pray about, so pray about everything!
