I had a rough day. Rough days are good days because they only come because I recently gave the devil a bad day.
So now I'm happy, happy, happy because I get to write to you what the Lord told me.
Jesus said He is like a man “going to a far country, who left his house and GAVE AUTHORITY to his servants, and to EACH HIS work… (Mark 13:34)
It is YOUR work and no one else can do it. It's the devil’s business to stop you—if he can. He is good at his job – be equally good at yours.
Satan will seek to hinder you. The more dangerous your call, the higher the rank of demonic opposition. But you can exasperate him. You can embarrass the demon assigned to you.
Put your authority to work and you AUTHORIZE ANGELS. Lay your heartache before the Lord but don't stop there. Set your angels up for a good fight. Whats that? A fight they can win. (Give them something to talk about later when you meet them.) It's a fight of faith because it starts out as a fight over your faith…
ENDURE THE CONTRADICTION
The book of Hebrews says of Jesus, “He endured the contradiction of sinners against Himself.” Powerful. During the period of contradiction, Hell will assault you with slander, torment you with false accusations, set you to work defending yourself, employ pious persons to repeat rumors about you, even hire editors and journalists to assail you.
When God's work seems slow, Hell will give a worldly offer, an open door. A fast-track to a better life.
You may have Pilate and Herod, Ananias and Caiaphas all combined against you, with Judas standing by jingling a better offer in his pocket. All he had to do, was agree with your enemies….and you have many.
And you wonder “Why are all these things happening?”
Can you not see that the whole thing is brought about through the cunning of the devil? Don't you see it's a trap designed to draw you off from your work? A snare to discourage your confidence?
CLICK YOUR HEELS, DOROTHY!
USE THE AUTHORITY given to you to get things done. Stop looking for miracle money and unrealistic big breaks and the next prophetic word, dream or conference. Don't look for the “sure” thing. Seek wisdom.
Stop wasting time, caught up in chasing other people's rabbits. Get away from “empty talkers” and find the “doers.”
Do YOUR work. Cultivate YOUR garden. Work YOUR field. See to it that the devil does not distract you from fulfilling the work God has given you.
WISDOM IS PROFITABLE
God didn't call you to sweat over making money, either. That's the wrong part of your field to always focus on. Heaven called you to something higher than that in your business. Think of Abraham. Sharpen your sword. Wisdom is a spirit as well as a gift, did you know that?
Put Wisdom to work and this spirit will go forth and get you the wisdom you lack! Wisdom attracts wisdom. When wisdom shows up “Wisdom is PROFITABLE to direct.” Wisdom generates profits.

YOU MAY BE
You may be chased by foes, abused by strangers, forsaken by friends, rejected of men…
But it will all work to your advantage if you make it your life mission to say; “I HAVE FINISHED THE WORK WHICH YOU HAVE GIVEN ME TO DO.”
Why? It's like the old success author once said: “EVERY ADVERSITY CARRIES WITHIN IT THE BENEFIT OF AN EQUIVALENT OR GREATER BENEFIT OF SUCCESS!” That's a powerful statement. You can convert the currency of any attack into an equal currency of promotion. How? Make it deepen your “life message.” Even your sins and failures can work to your advantage when they produce wisdom and pathos. (That is especially maddening to the devil)
