Oh my there goes that word again, Opposition……. You may often wonder why it seems that you continue to be plagued with challenge after challenge. You have done everything humanly possible to get your life together; however, opposition keeps knocking.
I encourage you to celebrate opposition as you would any success that you have and why……It’s simple, the opposition that you are going through is preparing you for your next promotion. No, I don’t mean promotion in the literal sense of ” job promotion” rather that, the opposition is preparing you for another level in your life.
As I think about the word opposition I immediately think about the bumblebee. According to recognized aerotechnical tests, the bumblebee cannot fly because of the shape and weight of his body in relation to the total wing area. The bumblebee does not know this, so he goes ahead and flies anyway (Encyclopedia of 7,700 Illustrations, by Paul Lee Tan [Assurance Publishers], p. 945). This is amazing right! So, I ask you…..what would you do if you knew you would not fail? The bumblebee is a great example of opposition and how it can lead to a magnitude of great things. For if the bumblebee gave in to the opposition, there would be no pollination and if there were no pollination, well you know the rest.
To accomplish anything significant, you must prepare for opposition. You must welcome it and allow it to propel you to another you.Respond to opposition with prayer, meditation, affirmations, and focus. Lock in and begin with the end in mind. Know that you are being prepared for your promotion…………………………….
Against every effort on our part to get our lives together and recover from damage, hurt, and ruin, we will experience opposition from the enemy. – Ray Steadman
