we know that great men and women of God and their ministries are born out of great adversity. This is a fact. But what we have failed to understand is that most of the adversity they encounter is because the ministry had long before been birthed in the spirit realm by the Holy Spirit. All the tribulation being experienced was because the Dark Kingdom wanted to stop the manifestation of the ministry into the physical realm. This same truth applies to our individual prayer lives as we learn from the book of Daniel. The problem in unanswered prayer (you can’t find unanswered prayer in the Bible) does not lie with God, but with us and our lack of understanding concerning the spirit world.
God revealed to me something very important about the spirit world; something that ties in with this principle—something we have not understood before in the Church. Whenever God calls a man or woman to a specific task or ministry, He births the ministry spiritually first. They may not even be aware in their physical body that this “birthing” has occurred, but it has already happened in the spirit world. Consequently the devil, being a spirit being, is alerted to this spiritual birth. He goes about immediately to destroy what God has established in order to make the ministry given to that person be stillborn. This principle is also reflected in Herod’s attempt to destroy the Lord Jesus at birth. Reflect on the parable our Lord told of the Sower and you will also see this truth
