The less you know about your Kingdom Identity, the greater chances you leave yourself open for someone to manipulate and control your destiny.
Manipulate is defined as:
handle or control (a tool, mechanism, etc.), typically in a skillful manner. "he manipulated the dials of the set"synonyms:operate, handle, work, control, use, employ control or influence (a person or situation) cleverly, unfairly, or unscrupulously.
When we don't know or at least seek to find out what God has placed in us; those who can "see" beyond what we present to others, can pick up on that & easily begin to manipulate for their own gain.
This is where we must know "who is safe for us and who is not". A safe person will not do this, they can even "see" the same thing, but will work to protect or help strengthen that area in our lives, they have no intention of exploiting our weak areas.
Others can "see" the anointing on your life, they can discern a call; and even see potential greatness - in business, entertainment, etc. and because we may not know the specific path that God has called us to; this is where manipulation and control can take place. Now! whether this act is intentional or no; God knows and hopefully we will learn this as well, but these individual will seek to change the path God has called us to take; they can literally take you off course because of what "they desire" and not God. Their desires take precedent in our lives and not our own. When you begin to sacrifice your family, your time, money and energy for the sake of someone else - something is wrong!
I pray you will come to know who you are and what specific treasures God has placed in you and your family, so you can allow God to lead and guide you on the correct path, it is only when we travel the specific path that God has ordained for us; in business or ministry - it is only there that we can prosper indeed.
Blessings to you and yours- Prophetess M. Floyd
