If you examine your life seriously, you will notice that it was just after you decided to accept Jesus into your life that you faced the greatest challenges. While you were in the world without hope and without a purpose, the enemy was happy. As long as you are not going to be an influential and impactful person, demons don’t seem to care much about you. If you decide to change the course of your life and dream big, demons are agitated and they start working towards destroying your dreams. Satan is not after your life, he is after your dreams. He wants to kill your ambition, destroy your aspirations and abort your plans before they see the light of day. This happened to Joseph in the Bible. His brothers were so frightened of his dreams that they thought killing him was the best way of stopping his dreams.
Genesis 37:17-20 “…Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan. And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him. And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh. Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him; and we shall see what will become of his dreams.”
As a child of God, the enemy is constantly seeking ways and means to entrap you and destroy you; but you have the grace of God in your life and the Holy Spirit that has been sent to protect you from any harm. The enemy started this with Jesus. He thought that if he crucified Jesus, he would destroy the plans of God on the earth. But this failed because Jesus rose again from the dead with the keys of hell. He was crowned in glory and given all authority in heaven and on earth. This is why the Bible says if the enemy had known, he would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
1 Corinthians 2:8: “…which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”
Let us examine our current environment. The enemy loves keeping people broke and suffering because he knows that as long as you can’t gain access to wisdom, you will work for him.
On the contrary, God wants you blessed and prosperous because He knows that if you are blessed and prosperous, you can help those around you and lift someone up. God has placed, in the heart of every believer, a great vision and a plan for their lives. He has said He knows the plans that He has for you and they are good plans to prosper you.
Jeremaiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith theLord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
