So, you have a vision from the Lord. You start to act upon this vision and then “POW!”
Well, it is BECAUSE you are obeying God that things start to hit. But, this does not mean that we should be waiting in fear to be under attack every time we move forward in God.
Ephesians 6:13 – So take up every piece of war equipment God provides; so that when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist; and when the battle is won, you will still be standing.
II Corinthians 12: 9 &10 – but he told me, (this is Paul speaking) “My grace is enough for you, for my power is brought to perfection in weakness.” Yes, I am well pleased with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties endured on behalf of the Messiah; for it is when I am weak that I am strong.

God gave us spiritual armor to wear. Just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it is not there. But, there will be times when you become weary and feel weak. It is during these times that God will come alongside you and take you the rest of the way. Remember the poem of Footprints? During the hardest times is when there are only one set of footprints. It is during these times that Yeshua carries us through the difficult stuff.
May you find His strength today in areas you are weak.
