The Anointing comes with pressures. Pressures to conform, to compromise and to quit. The enemy of your soul has a singular goal, to stop you. His desire is to destroy you, but will settle for delaying you, by any means.
Be mindful of the season, when supernatural pressure comes. When the wind blows troubles your way, consider what the storm is there to produce. The storm is MY armor-bearer, therefore the wind, the waves and the whirlwind obey ME.
If it could be done any other way, it would be so. MY ways are precise and MY plans are efficient. Use the moments that seem senseless to build your faith. Gather them all and place each at the altar, as a sacrifice.
The pressure is an indicator of the promise and that I can trust you, with both trouble and triumph. This is the pinnacle of faith, the building blocks of what sustained Daniel in the lion’s den, a faith that can stand on its own.
“Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?” Daniel answered, “O king, live forever! My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions. They have not hurt me, because I was found innocent in his sight. Nor have I ever done any wrong before you, O king.” The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den. And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God. At the king’s command, the men who had falsely accused Daniel were brought in and thrown into the lions’ den, along with their wives and children. And before they reached the floor of the den, the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.
