Whenever I lead you to a new kingdom venture, you will find two obvious elements, favor and opposition. The more you trust Me and do not try to build on your ideas, the more you will be opposed, but on the other hand, the more you will see My hand clearly working in your favor.
Peace and joy will be at the center of all you do. The opposition will build a wall of false accusations against you. They will assume all possible negative things to hinder your obedience, and turn people against you. I had this opposition from the time I was born, but I also had My Fathers favor, Matthew 3:16-17.
When you refuse to retaliate and stay in a kingdom atmosphere of love, I will continue to increase favor until the lies become exposed and My power sets many free! Follow My example and open not your mouth and as you take up your cross your death to self will occur, this is when you will be raised in My power, drawing many who have been lied too, out of bondage into liberty.
Do not defend yourself, because a dead person has nothing to defend. You cannot defend Me, you are a mere human being in a corrupt body of flesh and blood, Isaiah 66:1-2.
I must defend you and the mandate I have given you. When you attempt to defend yourself, you tie My hands and the opposition beats you back.
When you refuse to defend then when the opposition comes in like a flood, My Spirit will lift up a standard against him, Isaiah 59:19. When you are aligned with the calling and mandate I have placed upon you all of heavens forces will protect you and the mandate. Your only commission is to stay in perfect alignment no matter what the opposition does. None of this battle is your doing, or your responsibility to fight.
Stay in alignment with your calling and mandate and I will use the opposition to bless you! Here is heaven’s memo to you today: Do not count yourself to have apprehended yet: but do this one thing, forget those things which are behind you, and reach forth to those things which are ahead of you,  Keep pressing toward the mandate and for the prize of the high calling My Father has prepared for you, which is all wrapped up in. Me,” Philippians 3:13-14.
