Facing Opposition?

Jennifer Cole

“...He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 John 4:4, NKJV

Have you ever thought about this -- sometimes you can know what something IS by knowing what it ISN'T. For instance, you may be searching for your “dream home” -- and that journey may take you through a lot of “isn’t” before you can spot the one that “is!” But did you also know that this idea can be helpful for figuring out what’s going on in the supernatural too?

Here’s what I mean -- If you want to know what God is doing...just find out what the devil is opposing! If you want to know what God is anointing...just look at what the devil is fighting against. 

You can probably think of things you’ve seen the devil opposing and fighting all around you. In what ways has the enemy come against you? What types of complaints have you been hearing from naysayers? What challenges have you had to push through? It’s a very good sign that you are hot on God’s trail and the devil knows it -- so he’s been trying to stop, thwart, discourage and hinder you from pursuing it.

The devil doesn’t know everything, but he does know some things. He is not omnipresent, omniscient or omnipotent -- but he does have thousands of years of human history as a reference point. When he recognizes God's hand and anointing on someone or something, he fights it. 

Thankfully, because of Jesus, the devil is completely defeated and facing a very bleak eternal future in the lake that burns with fire. However, we would be wise to recognize that until that time, the enemy looks for what God is touching and whom God is anointing and he goes to work to suppress and oppose those things. When we recognize this, we will actually have a better grasp on what the Holy Spirit is doing!

From this perspective, now you can recognize the enemy’s opposition and take it as confirmation that you are smack-dab in the middle of God’s will and heading into even greater things! Don’t let the enemy cause you to quit. Stay in the game and allow the hand of God to work in and through your life in an even greater way! The devil is defeated and greater is He who lives in you than he who lives in the world!

Say This: “Father, thank You for helping me to recognize what You are up to in this world and in my own life by discerning those things the devil fights and opposes. Today, I choose to be strong in the Lord and Your plan for my life. I choose to be bold and walk in the anointing that is upon my life. Satan is defeated and Jesus is Lord of my life! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
