People that hinder us: The Prince of Persia-2
Galatians 5: 7 “Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?”
The neighbour told the man that his friend had since moved away from the area. Meanwhile it was that same man who borrowed him money that morning before leaving for work.
The man asked if perchance he knew where the friend had moved to, he said no. The man left disappointed only for him to drive a few meters away from the house and saw his friend rushing back home to pick a document he forget to take to the office!
That’s the typical operation of the prince of Persia. He want to hinder you by all means. He doesn’t want anything good to happen to you.
So how do I handle the prince of Persia?
Daniel employed two basic principles to get what belonged to him from the prince of Persia.
The first strategy he used was prayer. Daniel needed an answer from God, and he went on his knees and prayed. I have never met a successful Christian who doesn’t pray.
Prayer is a master key that can open any door, Jesus said:
John 16:24 “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
Once you ask him, he answers. Daniel believed in the efficacy of prayers and he prayed until he received answers in the physical.
The second strategy of Daniel is what I call persistence. This means possessing a never-say-die-spirit. An attitude of rugged determination.
The problem of most Christian is that we give up too easily. We concede defeat to the prince of Persia without putting up enough fight.
If Daniel had given up on the twentieth day or on the third day what do you think would have happened? Your guess is as good as mine.
Friend, make up your mind to wear out your opposition. Stay with it for as long as it takes. Your “angel Gabriel” is already on his way but can you keep up the prayer fuel till he gets to you?
