EPH. 6 vs 13
The enemy attacks you and fights you with everything he has got when you put your foot on your promises. He wants to move your foot from your promises. Temptations are always strongest and trials always hottest when you are on the brink and threshold of your breakthrough.
Agony is most anguishing when you’re on the threshold of your future, which is why Paul says: “be strong and put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand”.
There is a limit to your trial. The enemy knows that the alarm clock has been set for the breaking of your day, which is just a little while longer, so he turns on the pressure so hard so that you can take your feet off the spot, and if you do, you’ll have lost your blessings by just a brief moment. If you just stand during the trial, the devil will back off. He cannot outlast your stand because God’s armour is stronger than his ability to stand.
The one thing that will empower you to see you through the storm, to press through the troops and leap over the wall is the fact that you’ve tasted what the enemy is trying to prevent you from getting. Whatever God has shown you, you will never get it without a struggle. You have to fight the ‘good fight’ because it is a sign that no matter how hard the devil beats you, as long as you fight and stay in the ring till the last bell you have the victory already.
Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Not in your degrees, money, position etc. You will have to be weak in yourself but He that is in you is greater that he that is in the world.
