(Kathy) Realizing interference was deliberately used as a weapon of delay and disappointment explained a parade of experiences from the past for me, but I am declaring that pattern will no longer parade through my life like a norm. I wanted to ask the Lord why He allows this type of cunning interference, but I suspect it might be sons rather than Father allowing such operations to continue. So, I rephrased my question, “Lord, what do we do about interference that contradicts us when we are at key thresholds?” The answer I heard was, “Pray this way, ‘HANDS OFF’”. That sounded strange to me and I wondered if I really could pray that way or if I had misunderstood. Then I found those exact words in The Message, Psa 105:14, “He permitted no one to abuse them. He told kings to keep their HANDS OFF!” So, I prayed confidently, “HANDS OFF!” That was a step of progress but the lesson was not over.
