Opportunity & Opposition in Prayer
A few days ago, our youngest daughter text me this question:
"How come when u start really praying for something, it looks like the opposite occurs?
I responded with this answer: I hope it helps you -- she said it helped her. :-)
In the beginning of a process working toward the tipping point, gravity is working against you. As you CONTINUE to work toward the tipping point, what was working against you is now working for you.
Imagine several people seeking to flip over an automobile. As they begin to lift, gravity works against them, but they expect it! But they press through the resistance knowing IF they continue, they'll push pass the window of resistance to the tipping point, where the momentum is now UNSTOPPABLE!
The key is not to quit at the point where gravity is working against you, knowing that there is a point where that same force is now working for you! One of my favorite verses for this is 1 Corinthians 16:9 "...A wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries."
Opportunity and Opposition are partners. They are the two tracks the train runs on. They are constants, you need both to get you where you're going. Pray your prophecies!
