Our adversary always tries to get us to come down from our place of victory. As a child of God, we are in Christ; in the spirit we are sitting in the heavens. We are above and not beneath, in a place of safety, moving forth with great authority and anointing as we obey God.
When we put our faith into action and obey God, opposition increases to try and stop us. To be an ambassador of Christ is a great work and all believers are called to it, with no exceptions. When we are a doer of the Word, satan sends his lies to try and cause us to detour from our course. Satan not only is like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, but he also disguises himself as an angel of light. He will try to move us from our walk of faith by bringing things to us that appear to be good, but they are to distract us and delay our plans and purposes.
As we know our position in Christ, we are able to stay up and not come down from our place of victory, no matter the circumstances. Being an Ambassador of Christ becomes our priority in all that we do. The opposition that comes through distractions is easily detected. We are not ignorant of the schemes of satan. We do not leave the great work we are doing to go down to anything that calls us down. We ask the Lord and obey Him, and Him alone, from glory to glory!
Nehemiah 6:3 “So I sent messengers to them, saying, ‘I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?’ ”
