Daily Devotional – 3/15/18 “Spiritually equipped!”

Read the next line carefully … You cannot join a fight and not expect to get hit. This goes for physical but it absolutely goes for spiritual. This is why you have to be careful the battles you choose to war against, spiritually, because you may find it to be harder than expected. This is also why you have to be careful the conversations you join and the pity parties you accept invitations too. And going just to be nosey can get you caught up in some stuff you aren’t ready for. Beloved, the enemy doesn’t like the oily and the anointed. The enemy cannot stand the fact your feet hit the ground this morning. The enemy needs you to shut up and die but you won’t and now you got the audacity to be praying for the very folk he’s trying to break. Guess what’s about to happen, the enemy will attack you. Why? Because he needs you to hush. This is why you cannot take on what you know you cannot handle spiritually. Stop trying to cover everybody who shows up at the altar when you know you are a spiritual lightweight. Baby, there are levels to the anointing and when you tap into someone else fight, you better be ready to fight for them and FOR SELF! Please understand me plainly. I am in NO way insinuating your inability to handle whatever it is you’ve think you can handle but I need you to be aware of the things you may not expect.

The enemy doesn’t play fair and he will send attacks, to your house, simply for being in the meeting. And if you are unprepared to see the attacks before they happen, bind the attacks before they get loose and cast down the attacks after they’ve infiltrated your home; you’ll find yourself needing the same help you just gave. This is why you cannot lightly discount the real prophets, preachers and pastors who are willing to go to war for people because their suffering is ten times harder than the average believers. When you take on the demons of others, you feel the effects. Why do you think those prophets, preachers and pastors, who are for real about this spiritual thang, find it hard to sleep at night? It’s not because the TV shows are good but baby there is some work being done in the spiritual realm and the majority of time, it’s not for their house. No, you don’t have to stop praying for people and please don’t stop going to war for those who need it. However, equip yourself for the battle before you find yourself enlisted in a fight that can potentially leave you wounded, scarred or on the brink of death. Paul says in 1 Timothy 1:11-12, “Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
