Your reaction to your situation goes a long way to provoke the change you desire. Oppositions are very real. Every day, there are things opposing your progress, and you dont keep watching them, folding your hands; you obviously react to them.
*Topic:* REACTION TO OPPOSITION
*Read:* 1 SAMUEL 2:1-10
MEMORISE:* For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. (1 Corinthians 16:9)*
The greater the doors of opportunities, the greater the adversaries (cf. 1 Corinthians 16:9). There is no door that does not have oppositions. God has promised to bless us, but the devil stands on the way. There is no one exempted from oppositions. However, ours is different in that we have the guarantee of victory whenever the devil seeks to oppose us (John 16:33; Rom 16:20). God’s provision is, Rule in the midst of Your enemies! (Psalm 110:2b). So, stop giving the devil your back for stripes. Anything that won’t let you go must go for you. Oppositions are not the real problem, but your assessment and reactions to them.
The weapon to use in tearing down oppositions is the name of Jesus (Psalm 44:5; Philippians 2:10). If you refuse to push down the enemies, you might not be able to move forward. Break the barrier of stagnation, and advance forward because of the name of Jesus that is your help.
1. Lord, give me the right attitude to challenge satanic challengers.
2. Lord, whenever I call Your name, grant my requests.
3. Lord, help our nation and Church to appreciate and live by the fact that there is power in Your name to solve all problems.
