Amos 3:7 (KJV); Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
God wants to do great things in the lives of His children. He wants to teach them, promote them, elevate them, lead them and transform them.
Because God wants to do these things does not presuppose that the devil is not at work. In 1 Peter 5:8, the Bible says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”. He is constantly plotting and scheming ways to derail and destroy the children of light.
Unfortunately, there are people who are extremely interested in what the devil is doing as opposed to what God is doing. They would much rather know who has bewitched them, who is planning their downfall or who around them is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. When they seek God, their desire is to unveil their enemies. In essence, their prayer lives are always an exercise in understanding the devil.
This also applies to ministers of the gospel who are always inclined to observe what the enemy is doing as opposed to what the Master is doing. They will capitalise on the fact that they see in the spirit that a person is being bewitched by his auntie and ignore the fact that God is positioning that same person to function in higher realms of the anointing.
This does not mean that we should live ignorantly and ignore what the enemy does. It only means that we have to learn to live and minister ‘above the sword’ at all times. In Romans 16:19, Paul says that we must be simple concerning evil. You must be more conscious of the works of God as opposed to the work of the devil. Your consciousness should be God-centred and not devil-centred.

GOLDEN NUGGET: We have to learn to live and minister ‘above the sword’ at all times. You must be more conscious of the works of God as opposed to the work of the devil. Your consciousness should be God-centred and not devil-centred.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for what You are doing in my life and for the great things ahead of me. I look to You as the light that illuminates my path and gives me hope for the future. It does not matter what the enemy is doing, I choose to focus on what You are doing because in the end, it is all that matters, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
