My dear child, I have plans for you that I’ve prepared for you to walk in, and these plans are good. I desire to see you live in the fulfilment of the promises that I have spoken to you. So, I caution you to be watchful as the devil is always roaming about, seeking whom he can devour. His schemes are sneaky and, in these days, they are increasingly subtle. Although some of his methods may be obvious, others are extremely deceptive. But I am not ignorant of his ways or schemes. Draw close to Me and seek My counsel so that you are not deceived.
In this season when doors of great opportunity are opening, it is important to remember that you need My wisdom to discern which doors have been opened for you and who has opened them. My doors lead to promise and life; The enemy’s doors may look good, but they are distractions in disguise. These false doors are sent to delay. Therefore, remain in My counsel as you move ahead.
By my Spirit, you will know which doors I have opened for you and which pitfalls the enemy has planned for you so that you won’t be easily deceived. Always seek My counsel so that you will know which door is which.
Take a moment to reflect and consider the doors of opportunity that are presenting themselves to you. Are there any that you are uncertain about? Write these down in your journal. Now, spend some time with the Holy Spirit in prayer with these specific points:
-Ask God to reveal His wisdom to you regarding each opportunity.
-Ask the Lord for increased discernment to recognize distractions and deceptive paths.
-Seek God’s counsel on the decisions you need to make, committing each one to Him.
1 Peter 5:8 (NLT)
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
Proverbs 3:5-7 (MSG)
Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.
