There are some demons that only operate in the place of success and they come with special temptations because some temptations will never come to you until you become successful. Regardless of the sphere of your success, be it politics, faith, or career; once you start stepping on the grounds of success these special temptations will come.
When you are a pastor in one corner at the end of nowhere, you won’t have some of these temptations but when you get to a level the devil will orchestrate some situations and you must have prepared your answer in the days of little beginning. Some things may be popular with men but if you will have power with God, you must get ready to defy the popular opinion and stand with God on the day of special temptations. If a prominent figure dies and his family approached you to conduct the service, what will you say on the pulpit when the whole world knows that he was a sinner? Those are special temptations and they can face even the basic Christian. The rate at which Christians are compromising in high places saddens the heart of the Father.
Joseph had always been goodly and handsome, but the wife of his master only noticed him after he was made the head of the servants. And you should know that there are things in your life that no one may notice in the days of obscurity when God is still working on you but when He has finished His process in your life, those things cannot make you fail provided you followed your process correctly. In fact, only the Christians that took the days of preparation serious can succeed with success because most people fail with success.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive divine enablement to rise above every temptation that the enemy will bring against me. Prepare me ahead in Jesus’ name. Amen!
