Day 16 The Enemy Below

Watch and pray

Read: 1 Samuel 23:26-29 and Psalm 61

King David was hiding in the mountains, not in anticipation of a meeting with Yahweh but hiding from an enemy who relentlessly pursued him. One of the benefits of your mountaintop experience is the ability to see the enemy approaching. We cannot be ignorant of the enemy’s attacks even on the mountain. So use this time to examine your surroundings and identify the devices of the enemy which have often been successfully used against you.

“Watch and pray” is how Yeshua the Messiah would put this. At this stage of your journey you may find there are all kinds of rationalizations that may discourage you from continuing, such as, “you received everything you needed so far”. But I urge you, remain committed to the number of days you originally pledged. Also your purpose requires you to be alert and protective of what you have and are receiving from the Father. Keep a close watch on your thoughts and words, speak life and victory in every territory that you have claimed during this journey.

Pray: A.C.T.S. – Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving and Supplication

Write: Is it becoming easier or harder to continue in this commitment? Remind yourself why you will need to stay alert today.
