Beloved, you may never know yourself until your enemies show up. The Late Kenneth E. Hagins of blessed memory was so sick that doctors told him he will not live to see his sixteenth birthday. Little did they know the sicknesses in his body was organized to reveal the healing, faith and prophetic anointing upon his life.
Don’t behave like David’s elder brother, Eliab and others who didn’t see Goliath as an opportunity to stake a claim at the throne, neither like King Saul who lost his throne because an enemy showed up. I employ you to be like Joshua and David who used the enemy as a stepping stone to write their names on the sand of time.
Joshua may have been practicing secretly and building his muscles but he wouldn’t have had the opportunity to use it if the Amalekites didn’t engage them in battle.
There was “fight” inside Joshua waiting for the “Amalekites” all the while they were in Egypt but the warrior in him requires the right kind of enemy for manifestation.
There was interpretation of dreams inside Joseph even though in prison and in obscurity but it took the enemy in the form of a worrisome dream of Pharaoh to bring it out. You will never leave the prison of life and obscurity until you engage the enemy.
Love you BiG
