Our adversary tries to get us to come down from our place of victory. 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 stop us. To be an ambassador of Christ is a great work God calls all believers to, with no exceptions. When we are a doer of the Word, satan sends his lies to 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 can stay put and not come down from our place of victory, no matter the circumstances. We do not put up with what comes to put us down. We put down hindrances to our obedience to the Lord, 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?’”
