The reason so many people don’t have lasting enduring success and progress is because they think spirituality is time wasting. Religionism is time wasting, not spirituality. Most people want to be free by freeing themselves but you can never be free until you are righteously bound somewhere. David had to first go upward and take Hebron before going forward to take the land of Jebus.
You cannot have a strong public physical life without a strong secret spiritual life sustaining it. It is the secret labour that justifies a great open manifestation. Before Jesus placed any anointing on the disciples to empower them, they were with him for three and a half years.
However, no matter what level you are, the devil will always present a negative or an evil seat for someone around you, to contend for where you are gunning for. Most Christians are just careless and do not pay attention to their secret lives. Christians have Jesus Christ as the captain behind them but most don’t pay attention to Him. Most seemingly normal people in the society gunning for high level positions have spirits, other than their own spirit, moving with them to help them attain such positions.
Although there are some people who are merely prejudiced, some others have serious demonic oppositions against their getting married. The more prominent your destiny on the physical side is, the more prominent the resistance will be to your getting there. If the price is not big enough, then the devil will not fight for it. You can have the forward movement in life natural or by human arrangement but when it is not well secured by the upward movement, it will soon be negatively affected.
When your progress is oppressive enough to the devil, he will come out opposing you! Don’t go to Church for going sake; you are to go for the training, equipping, building, shaping and sharpening of your spirit man.
Prayer: Lord, I yield myself to the preparation and equipping of this season for my expected promotion to manifest. I receive all the divinely aligned upward and forward movement for the year in Jesus’ name. Amen.
