For a wide door of opportunity for effectual[service] has opened to me [there, a great and promising one], and [there are] many adversaries.– 1 Corinthians 16:9
Every time God puts a new idea in our hearts or gives us a dream, vision or new challenge for our lives, the enemy will be there to oppose us.
God constantly calls us to new levels. Some seem big and important; others seem relatively small or insignificant. Whatever the case, when we reach a new level with God, we will face a new level of opposition from our enemy, the devil.
Along with opposition, however, comes opportunity. And God is always with us, so we have no need to fear. Some things may seem too great for us, but nothing is impossible with God. He is not surprised or frightened by anything and with Him, we can accomplish any challenge set before us.
If you are determined to reach the new levels God is calling you to , then don’t give up in the face of opposition. Instead, realize that the greater the opposition, the greater the opportunity is in front of you. Be courageous and draw boldness and courage from the Holy Spirit, for He is always with you.
