As I was meditating this morning God gave me a powerful revelation. He told me that many aren’t breaking through because of gate keepers. Have you been praying for something and it seems like it is blocked, held up, shut in?! The problem is because you focus on the object and not the spirit behind it! Humm…Beloved, if you are a godly person you will be met with spiritual opposition. There are opposing spirits set over different kingdoms and dominions. More, some of you have broken through, but not broken totally free! Perhaps you prayed for: a job, house, healing, or a spouse and an opportunity finally came to you but there is a person or persons, circumstances, or situations preventing you from receiving your full miracle. That is your gate keeper. You get upset and angry at a person because you feel like it is the person that is sabotaging a dream. You take their news, behavior or dismal report to heart and are despondent and hopeless. Only if you can learn to identify the spirit behind the messenger; they are simply satan’s messengers!
Luke 11:11 says,
If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
Beloved, this verse is saying God hears the desires of your heart and He wants to give you the bread of life. But what God put on my heart today is that you must fight against the gate keepers! First, you must understand spiritually that your impasse is not because of a person but the spirit behind the person; therefore release any anger attached to the person or situation. Anger delays your blessing. Then you must get to work praying warfare prayers against the spirit that is blocking your miracle from coming forth. Beloved remember in Daniel 10 when the angel of the Lord, Gabriel, came to Daniel and told him his prayer was answered since the first day he prayed but the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood him 21 days and Archangel Michael came to help him?
The important point here is that Daniel fought in the spirit for three weeks, praying and fasting, only then the angel of the Lord came with the good news that his prayer was indeed heard! More, in Genesis 32-22-31, The Bible says Jacob wrestled with a man for his blessing. Jacob fought with the man so fiercely that the man pleaded with Jacob to let him go! In Mtt. 11:12, The Bible says heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. Violence in this context isn’t physical violence, but fighting in spirit for what God said is inherently yours! The man overpowered and subdued by Jacob’s strength pleaded to know his name because Jacob’s warfare was so intense. The man gave Jacob the name Israel because ” you have striven with God and men.” Meaning Jacob contended with God until He blessed Him. Beloved sometimes we have to go into deep prayer and worship with the Father until we come out with the victory. Christianity isn’t for the weak at heart. More, Jacob wrestled toe to toe with man, not succumbing until he prevailed! There’s a physical and spiritual connotation here folks! The battle must first be won in the spiritual before it can be won in the physical!
Beloved you have to fight! Resist the urge to wallow in despair, self-pity, hopelessness, and sadness! War against the gate keeper! Your request may be delayed, but keep going daily to the battle field! Don’t give up until you get your breakthrough. In Revelation 3:7-8, God says he knows you have little power but because you have kept His word and didn’t deny His name, He will open doors no man can shut and shut doors no man can open. Beloved, what is meant for you to have you will have. Get it out of your mind that someone is standing in the way of or preventing you from attaining what is rightfully yours. What is meant for you, no man can deny if it is God’s will for you! It is God who holds the key to the gate!
