Life can be harsh or mean at times but that depends on how we tend to see or perceive things, few people actually know exactly when they are winning or when they are on top of their game. They might know it, feel it but then before they try to enjoy it the enemy devices another means to confuse them.
The enemy is smart and dubious, he has ways to make a winner seem as if he or she is losing. He tries to give us a mental picture of the opposite of what life is, especially when you are winning. When they lose the spiritual war, they attack with mental, social or even emotional wars (though the can still be seen or grouped into spiritual wars). The last 3 types of wars might seem easier but very complicated and dangerous if one doesn't get hold of his or her self. The enemies will try to use others against us, people very close to us, people who we already dislike, peer group or peer pressure, family members, spouse, lovers, partners (business or otherwise) unlikely outcome of events and more. Basically what they do is, they more you win, they more they toss obstacles at you, they try to provoke you, irritate you or humiliate you. When you defeat them in a major or ground breaking spiritual warfare, they result to guerrilla warfare. They begin to attack you at every junction, they begin to toss things that are really provoking, mainly little things that you would have overlooked initially but because you just had a real intense situation at hand, these little things seem to change our mode if we are not very careful. They know fully well that they can't win but just to resist you, to hinder or delay your victory, they start acting out of frustration. So this lead me to the conclusion that whenever the fight gets tiring, frustrating, provoking and maybe intense.That actually means that one is very close to his or her goal. It is the crown and the throne that they are trying to prevent you from getting to, so they will use every means available to stop you or at least slow you down before they can get better and suitable tactics to match your fire power. Whether you are winning or losing, you need a sound mind to be able to stay in the game. Do not let pressure or provocations make you lose your crown, because the enemies has nothing to lose, it's your right that they are fighting for. It's your heritage and destiny that they are trying to destroy not theirs. So they won't lose anything even if what they are fighting for gets destroyed or even if you win them, they are just thieves. so don't let their frustration become your frustration, don't let what you see or feel dictate the how you feel. Though it is hard as we all need the grace of God to carry on, lean on God to carry is all I can say and be prayerful. Thanks as we keep going on. Klynch
