“When you are a man of vision, no matter what constitutes obstacles on your way, you can never be stopped: Opposition cannot stop you; blackmail cannot stop you. Instead of pressure and tension to force you to reduce your vision, they would even enlarge your strategies.
Opposition makes a man of vision to discover and develop better strategies to further his cause in the presence of his enemies. A man without opposition has no need to develop strategies.
For example, I am running and somebody is running after me, if that person running after me is an enemy and he increases his speed, I must also double my speed in order to prevent him from catching up with me. The more your enemies are after you, the more you pray. I mean, the more you need to improve your quiet moments for devotion.”
– Prophet T.B. Joshua
