“Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.” Matthew 26:36
As intercessors, oftentimes, we will go through seasons of plots by the enemy to attack our authority and kingship. The destroyer knows the hearts he has chosen to enter into to carry out his plot: to destroy intercession! Just as it is written, the enemy used our Lord Jesus’ disciple-turned betrayer, Judas Iscariot to carry out his wicked scheme. Make no mistake about it, the enemy will use those who are trusted and familiar with our garden to also carry-out his assignments.
When Jesus had spoken these words, He went forth with His disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which He entered, and His disciples. And Judas also, which betrayed Him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with His disciples.
Be not dismayed during attacks that attempt to come against your prayer life. Remember, Nehemiah. Giveth no ear to the enemy lies or attend to his distractions. Keep your eyes fixed upon our Beloved Lord Jesus and continue by faith with Him and build the walls for the Kingdom!
May thy Lord Jesus grace you to stand against the adversary!
