When we want to see the best of performance from an individual, we would ask such person to go and get trained (especially in his chosen field of career). In fact, in some professions, you are not expected to make any mistake after you have been properly trained by the governing body, a slight mistake could cost you your life, your license of practice or land you in jail – Likewise, we Christians need to be specially trained to perfectly represent God’s Kingdom on earth and prevail over darkness and the world.
There’s a division in the Army known as SPECIAL FORCES, this kind of soldiers are not usually grouped together with the common field soldiers, they are trained specially for special missions that a normal soldier cannot handle. In fact, the US government can spend millions of dollars just to train two special force soldiers, this is because they know that these two specially trained soldiers can achieve what thousands of normal soldiers can’t achieve. Now, what I’m saying here is that, there are some problems in your life presently that wouldn’t have been there if you had been trained by the Lord (this is because you wouldn’t have made the mistake that caused the problem). Also, there are some tough problems in this world that can only be solved by those who have been specially trained and equipped spiritually to solve them.
You see, the kingdom of darkness have so much advanced in their operations on earth such that you need God to train, strengthen and equip you to face and defeat them! Some people say “devil is not powerful”, well, that is when you are stronger than him, If you don’t go and get strength and you come to face the devil, he will successfully and easily defeat you. It is not easy to hear God’s voice, you have to be trained to know and hear His voice, it is not easy to stand and pray for many hours in the Spirit, you have to be trained and equipped for it… Yes, the Holy Spirit needs to work on your spirit and mind for you to easily achieve things like: getting fresh revelations from the Scriptures, doing prolonged fasting, fighting and winning spiritual battles, interceding and getting results, manifesting spiritual gifts perfectly and accurately, and ministering the gospel with Power!
WE ARE CURRENTLY IN A VERY DEADLY WARFARE, AND IF YOU DON’T GET TRAINED, YOU ARE NOT LIKELY TO SURVIVE!! HEAVEN HAS INVESTED SO MUCH ON YOU, WHY NOT LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND GO GET STRENGTH IN GOD?!!! Amen.
