Daniel 11:32 (KJV) And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Sandra was now a threat to the witches in her neighborhood because she was now getting spiritually strong. The reason for this strength was her growing knowledge of the Lord.
Some of the women in the neighborhood who used to be very nice to her all of a sudden became unpleasant and rude. One of them told her to her face that “shouldn’t you be worried that you are not yet married at your age?”
They observed that Sandra was growing in the knowledge of the Lord and they wanted to slow her down by making her depressed and frustrated. But their plan did not work because the Lord told her she would be entering a relationship very soon and getting married soon. If they were able to succeed to get her into depression, they would have been able to slow down her growth and growing strength.
The devil understands that the more you spend time with the Lord, the more you will know Him, and you will be more powerful as a result. He will do everything to detract and discourage you from the place of fellowship. We should not be unaware of the devices of the devil.
Go into today remembering that no matter what happens, your time of fellowship with the Lord should not be compromised. Don’t let the devil discourage you through circumstances or people who are under his control.
Prayer: Lord, help me give myself consistently to disciplines that will help me grow in my knowledge of you. Amen.
