In this life, we are going to face the uncomfortable, painful moments, and opposition. Enduring opposition is going to require you rely completely on God, and to go back to what He has already spoken over you. Opposition comes when the enemy knows that you are fully grounded in the Lord. Opposition comes when the plan for your life is so ground-breaking that the enemy wants to knock you out. Opposition comes when we are walking in the will of God.
Enduring opposition is going to be challenging. People will belittle you. You will experience hurt and rejection during this battle with opposition. The enemy will not play fair. This is the time to not stay defeated. We know a God who has all power and all authority over everything that may come our way. This opposition will require you to meet God in agreement over what He has ordained for your life. The enemy would not be attacking you so hard, if the promises of God were not great.
You will face opposition as a child of God. Jesus faced opposition. He did not plant you here to be taken out by the enemy’s tactics. No matter how many times you get knocked down by opposition—rise. Rise in the face of hostility. Rise in the face of resistance. You will have to declare the victory that Jesus has already revealed in you. God is with you while you are withstanding this resentment. There is such a greater reward on the other side when you hold to the words and promises of God in the middle of opposition. When God is for you, then who can be against you?
