Sometime last week, God gave me a revelation. While I was talking to someone, they were so concerned about not telling some certain family members about a change in their lives. As he spoke, the Holy Spirit dropped this scripture in my heart…
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand
Am sure you’re thinking, “so we’ve read and heard this scripture many times.”
But hear me out….,
Many people especially of the African descent are so deceived and fooled for centuries by these statements…
“Don’t tell anyone we are travelling”
“Don’t tell anyone we are buying a house”
“Don’t tell anyone we are having a baby”
“Don’t tell anyone we are getting married”
And so on…
What we are dealing with is in the spirit not in the physical, so if we understand this scripture very well, we will know that “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
These people you are so concerned about not telling your progress, should already know what you are doing or planning, because they are spirits and not flesh and blood.
Then in verse 13, the bible says we should rather… “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”. This means instead of being so concerned with not telling people, we should put our focus and strength into praying against the evil ones. The ones who are planning evil in the spirit and not in the physical people of God.
Remember these things take place in the supernatural before the natural.
Don’t be fixated and fooled. Not that I am asking you to get a microphone and stand on the highest mountains, and tell to the whole world, but do not be afraid to proclaim the goodness of God.
Psalms 119:46 – I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
Matthew 5:16 – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Let prayer against the wiles of the enemies be our priority. Remember Job, plans concerning him were all happening in the heavens before it manifest on the earth.
Be more concerned about making sure your armour is in tact. Which are…
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
PRAY! PPRAY!! AND PRAY!!!
Be blessed 😇🙏😘
