Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost. For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. – 1 Cor 16:8-9

New opportunities mean new enemies. New levels mean new devils! Paul rejoiced that a new and effective door of opportunity had opened wide for him; but he was certainly not ignorant of the fact that every open door presents new challenges.

Celebrate breakthrough! But don’t be surprised when opposition comes. Take it as a compliment that your effectiveness has the enemy’s attention! Be prepared, and fight from the victory Jesus has already given you on the Cross.

Prayer:

Father, I declare the enemy is powerless over me in Jesus’ name. He cannot alter the plans You have for me, and he cannot quench the effectiveness with which You have blessed me!
