One fact of life is that in this life, “we are all operating at different levels or phases of life. Often or most of a time, we are the person that determines the level of life we operate in.”
In this life, one obvious fact is that before we can move from one level of life to another or the next level, we must necessarily pass the equations or exams of life of the present or lower level before we are allowed to move to the next or higher level.
These equations or examinations of life all appear in forms of challenges or battles of life. Often, these battles always await for us at the gates of our destiny.
These battles are to prevent us from moving to our next level in destiny, and often wait for us at the gate of our destiny. It is not until we boldly face or confront and conquer these battles of life that we are allowed to move to the next level.
No wonder many are failures or stagnant in life, going round in circle, thereby ever busy yet arriving at nowhere because they totally avoid facing or confronting their battles of life.
Another fact of life is that we all face different types of battles and often, most of the battles are the result of voices of evil altars speaking against us.
In some people, there are voices of heavy-duty altars speaking against them. Such people, they have to battle even to drink a cup of water. Doors and gates that others easily passed through get closed against them.
As a result, some run away from facing or confronting the enemies that are closing the gates of destiny against them while some people even surrender to fate, accepting everything that fate throws at them.
For this reason we should remember this fact that life is not fair at all, this is because it does not deliver to us what we deserve but delivers to us only what we demand.
We must therefore take personal responsibility to confront and conquer or win the fierce battles or wars waiting for us at the gate of our destiny if we are ever going to fulfill our destiny.
It is these fierce battle or wars at the gate of our destiny that are responsible for most of the failures some encounter at the edge of success or breakthrough.
Bringing this matter home, I wish to point out that there are certain gates we must necessarily pass through if ever we must fulfill our destiny. However, the enemy try to close these gates against us. We must therefore take personal responsibility to fight to ensure that such gates are opened.
Moreover, there are other gates that must necessarily be securely closed, but the enemies try to ensure that such gates are open. For that reason, many are suffering various form of afflictions and calamities or the other because the gates of afflictions that should remain closed, the enemies try to force them wide open to allow easy passage of afflictions. We must necessarily fight to force such gates closed.
We must therefore necessarily take personal responsibility and face or confront these battles of life for them at the gate of our destiny if we must succeed or to enjoy breakthrough in life which enables us to fulfill our destiny.
As said, some run away from facing or confronting these life battles while some people even surrender, refusing to fight their own battles of life. That is, they surrender to fate, accepting everything that fate throws at them.
For this reason and owing to the fact that this life is not fair at all, this is because it does not deliver to us what we deserve but delivers to us only what we demand.
In fighting these battles of life, we must realize that as 1 Samuel 2:9 says, “He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness “For by strength no man shall prevail”.
Also, Proverbs 21:31 the horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD. We must therefore ensure that cannot fight these battles on our own without God’s help.
Secondly, we must ensure that we are well-prepared or equipped before we confront the enemies at the gates of our destiny, out to prevent us from fulfilling our destiny.
In view of this, we must equally realize that as Ephesians 6:12-13 puts it “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
We must therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. What therefore is your own intake on the matter?. Shalom!
