You are experiencing warfare, it is not an illusion. People and principalities have set themselves against you, but it is not skin and bones that you are fighting. The fight is manifesting in the natural, but was initiated in the spirit realms.
Do not worry, I have provided either a lesson, a victory or a way of escape. Check your emotions and pay attention to what you see. The times of escape are for you, to see the tactics of the enemy, that you can be better prepared in the future.
The eternal is being neglected, based on decisions made in the temporal. There is a gap between what you have prayed for and when you receive it. A gap between what you are hoping for and what is your reality.
A gap between your hurt and your healing. The gap is where your Faith is tested and where your strength becomes evident. This is the, hard place, where character is formed. A place I use to expose, that which is in you.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
