Whether you obey or you disobey the call, a crisis is going to come. When you obey the call of God, the devil fights because it is in the calling that you are a threat to the devil, not in salvation alone. You are not a threat to the devil if you are born-again alone. There are many people born-again today that the devil doesn’t bother about because they are not serious with their calling. The weapons that can damage the devil are in your calling!
In your salvation, you are taken from the captivity of the devil; in your calling, you are equipped to go back to that same devil, defeat him and take other people from his captivity. That is why the devil fights people getting into the calling of God for their lives and functioning there. The devil seeks to push people out of their callings and discourage them, and that is why some Christian enter into some battles.
Likewise, if you disobey the calling, you will go into crisis with God because from that point on, frustration, a lack of fulfilment & dissatisfaction sets in. Many people are trying to satisfy the cry of the calling with so many things – party, fame and looking for pleasure in different things. Other people are struggling with problems because of the calling they carry. The devil wants to tie them down with these problems so they never see their callings. Get out of your problems and get into your calling. The devil can’t defeat the purpose of God in your life once you embrace it. When Joseph entered the purpose of God for his life, nobody could stop him. Everything they did against Joseph was working for him.
PRAYER: Father, I embrace your call for my life afresh today. I pray against every effort of hell to hinder me from fulfilling your purpose for my life in Jesus’ name.
