Two messages in one: The Devil is Afraid of You getting a BREAKTHROUGH! and DON’T GIVE UP JUST BECAUSE THE DOOR CLOSED!
The Devil is Afraid of You getting a BREAKTHROUGH!
“But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” Isaiah 40:31.
This very moment, I want you to let that soak in… That’s right, Satan is afraid of God’s people breaking through in the spirit!
Just as he as tried to hold up the prayers of Daniel in the spirit, he is attempting to pull the same old tricks to make you feel as if God does not care or that God does not hear you. He is the same old dog with the same old tricks.
This is why it is so important to wait on the Lord and not to be in a hurry. So keep pressing, praising, and praying until you break through in the spirit. Keep on waiting on the Lord and believing for your breakthrough! The enemy knows that if you get a breakthrough that you will break out and break free of the chains of depression, oppression, setbacks, set ups, lack, discouragement, disappointment. And anything else that he uses to bind you up in the spirit!
He knows that your praise and faith in God will cause you to soar to higher levels and that it will be a lethal weapon against him. The enemy can’t stand your praises to the Lord because when he hears you praising God, he knows two things. Number one, he knows that he has lost the battle with you, and secondly. Number two, he knows that he is dealing with a person like job. A person with literally nothing to lose spiritually or physically. He realizes that you are literally saying to yourself, “I might as well endure the storm and wait until my change comes.”
So let the enemy know that you have nothing to lose by waiting on the Lord but that you have everything to gain in Christ!
You might as well wait it out and keep on praying and believing God and very soon, the Lord will shake and break you free from the hold of the enemy and your breakthrough and the answer to your prayers will manifest right before you as you wait upon the Lord!
DON’T GIVE UP JUST BECAUSE THE DOOR CLOSED!
“And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open” Isaiah 22:22.
Just because you have had a door or several doors to close in your face, does not mean that God is not guiding or leading you.
God will close doors on your past, ministry, jobs, careers, relationships and any other door that is not the right path for your destiny. God says in His word that if I open a door, then no man can close it and if I close it then no man can open it (Isaiah 22:22, Revelation 3:7-8). Many times we feel that it is the right door and that we need to get through a certain door to a particular job, ministry, or other pursuits in life to be successful or to be happy.
But yet at the same time, God will allow the door to close because he knows that what is on the other side of it is not what is best for you. So don’t give up hope just because the door closed in your face!
Know that God has your best interest at heart.. and in the right time, He will allow you to walk into the door that He has opened just for you… !
