Why Are Things So Intense In The Spirit Realms Right Now?

We’ve all been feeling it: the intensity in the spirit. The pressure. The pushback. The resistance. The attacks. The buffeting. It seems like one thing after another. Some days, it feels like every breath, step and word requires an increase of focus and effort. Everything feels like a push—even prayer, devotional times and worship.
The enemy wants us to think it is because he is winning. He wants us to choose to believe that the intensity means his agenda of wickedness, unrighteousness and evil are rising to an unstoppable high tide of darkness. And sure, many of the things we are dealing with in our lives—as well as most of the headlines and stories coming across our news apps— can make it easy to agree with that. But remember this: The enemy is a liar; he is not winning; he is defeated.
That’s not to say what you have been seeing, sensing, discerning and dealing with aren’t real. It’s simply to remind you that they are not signs that the enemy has found a way to out-maneuver, out-smart or out-play God.
So why then are things so intense on so many fronts right now?
The Lord helped me understand two key things: Why the enemy is pushing back so hard right now and why God allows seasons like this.
