Beloved, we are in a world of powerful forces that harass men. These evil powerful forces do not operate according to natural laws. There is a lamentation of this, in the book of Ecl. 9 v 11 “I returned and saw under the sun that The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all. This lamentation proves that there are forces operating on the lives of men that many people cannot understand.
Beloved, the powers that confuse many, the forces that determines the course of our lives are both visible and invisible.
A lot of people are wrestling with hard mysterious battles. What does this mean? Some people have done all there is to do for them to be successful, yet they remain failures. Some even have higher degrees, professional qualification and have done everything that should qualify them for success, yet the success desired remain elusive.
Many are battling with disobedient children, many marriages are unstable, and sicknesses have become a routine affair in the life of many. A man just discovers that in one particular area or in many areas of life, he is struggling with something he cannot understand, identify or pinpoint. He just goes from one problem to another. He is always at the edge of good health but never really achieving good health. Many go about with a sickness that defies medication. Sometimes the way may look clear, but as some try to access the clear way or route, they stumble and fall. This is a sign of battle from the home. Many cannot get a grip of what is happening, they are struggling with something they cannot understand or identify, their battle is from the home.
