You do not have to compromise or make backroom deals when it is God’s Will.
You may have to fight, you may have to wait, you may have to cry, you may be hurt for a season but you will not have to lose your integrity or go out of God’s will to have or get it.
If you hold to your integrity and walk in righteousness, God will fight for you.
Satan approached Jesus in the wilderness offering Jesus what Jesus already had. If Jesus never knew who the Father was, who He was and what He was about, He would have given in and Satan would have defeated Him.
If we do not know God, who we are and what we are about, we will compromise, lose hope, and give in to what we are to resist and conquer.
Listen, not every struggle or hardship is the devil. Some of them are actually designed and orchestrated by God.
Sometimes, we will never have wisdom or knowledge until we experience some things.
Sometimes we will never know how to fight until we are attacked.
Sometimes, we will never know what is in until we go through some stuff.
Sometimes, it is in the fight we get our fight.
It is not God’s will for you to lose something at the expense of a person, their life or their destiny. God does not work like that and is none of that.
Sometimes this is where we often miss the mark because often times what God wants to give to you or He want for you to have will always require a process because He has to break something’s off of you before He releases it to you.
The thing about it is, Satan will try to get you to abort the process, because if he can get you to abort or avoid the process, you will not have the capacity or depth to deal with and handle what God has for you.
When you are premature, you will never walk into what God wants you to because you lack the resources the process would have developed in you.
You see, it is not always the enemy. If Satan can get you to go against you, he knows there is a chance he will defeat you.
Sometimes when the enemy knows he cannot defeat you, he will try to use you to go against you because the truth is, it is only you that can stop you.
