First, the Spirit of God will strive with a man. God is going to strive with us whenever our ignorance or our wrong training conflicts with His choice for us or gets in the way.
For example, if you wanted to do something contrary to the will of God, the Spirit of God within you will rise in opposition. This striving determines your submission to His Lordship or where you react to His will.
When the Lord said to Paul, “…It is hard for you to kick against the pricks” (Acts 9:5), the prick that He was talking about there is the will of God for his life. If you knock it, it will hurt you. You can’t knock God’s will for your life and not injure yourself somewhere. All you need to do is to move away from reacting to God’s will and stay in the centre of His will for your life. Don’t try to test God by finding out how far you can move to the edge of His will before you get into danger. Don’t test it!
Instead, you must seek to press beyond the point of no return with the Lord. If you can gain victory in this area of submission to God’s will, making Him your Lord, letting Him decide and all you’re doing is just carrying out His decision, you cannot be defeated as a believer. If you are carrying out the decision of the president of this country, he has to back you up with his power. In the same way, when you’re carrying out the decision of the Almighty God, no principality and power will be able to stand against you, not even any man or the devil. The God of that decision is going to show Himself strong for you.
PRAYER: Father, I yield to You. I will not frustrate the strivings of Your spirit in me. Amen.
