There is an anointing that brings transformation from where you are now into the liberated place you have to be in. 1st Timothy 1:8 encourages us not to be ashamed of our conflicts, situation or current condition but rather be partakers of the afflictions through which the power of God is made manifest.
the power of God creates an atmosphere of Conflict;when the enemy says or does anything in their authority,the power of God brings conflicts. God sends an answer in the conflicts to show himself.
You should desire to move in the conflict, become a partaker and see the breakthrough of God in your life.
Do not be disturbed but rather know that you are a magnet that attracts conflicts or afflictions because of the anointing of God upon your life, 2nd Timothy 1:9.
Afflictions come in many levels. Jesus did not run from them but rather run to it. He is telling mankind that we have been called to step in and do the impossible to showcase the power of God. Scripture reference is from Ephesians 3:20 and 1st Kings 19:19-21.
