Spiritual conflict in forward motion
"strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, "Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God."”
There will always be warfare, tests and opposition to kingdom advancement and personal breakthrough! Anytime the expansion of the kingdom comes in ones life their is a spiritual conflict. Most natural battles are due to spiritual activity. Our battles are spiritual and we find the expression of them within the conflicts of others and in the situations we find ourselves in.
The calling of God on ones life propels one into spiritual conflict! In spiritual conflict one is responsible for strengthening their spiritual senses. He is our rear guard and our battle ax, but we must war with Him a good warfare! Only through adversity am I trained as a good soldier.
David writes, "Blessed be the Lord, My Rock who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle, My loving kindness and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, who subdued my people under me." Psalms 144:1-2
The enemy will try anything to block the forward motion that one has stepped into. Keep advancing forward and don't allow any demonic activity to stop what the Lord has commissioned you to do. Training in conflict produces spiritual muscles to endure to the finish line. Rejoice that as you find yourself in conflict, you are advancing!
Recognizing the enemy’s patterns and cycles in your personal life is a great way to begin to dismantle his efforts against you. He’s a defeated foe and all one really needs is the revelation of his strategy to outwit him. The kingdom of God cannot be stopped or defeated and The Lord Jesus has faith in what He has deposited in you. Advance forward in Christ because you are victorious and were created to be an overcomer!
