“I AM WITH YOU”
Since I answered God’s call to serve him, there has been persecution all around me including from my own house.
That of my own house, I really understand that it’s the tactic of the enemy so that I will not focus on my assignment, but that doesn’t bother me a bit because Jesus says in the book of John chapter 15 verse 20
“Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.
Based on this truth I have concluded that absolutely nothing can stop me.
“When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.” And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebub! Mark 3:21-22.
Whatever anyone says concerning you is none of your business; your business should be completing your assignment and still keep the Faith.
What is your choice?
Returning back to your old way would be a bad choice for me. Why? “Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62
Therefore going with enthusiasm in the way of Christ, and continuing wreaking havoc to the kingdom of the devil will be my best choice.
The day enemy lost control over me was the day Christ took over my life.
How do you perceive yourself?
He that is with you is greater than he that is in the world.
One day I was praying, and the Lord said to me “though you may think that everything is going contrary to what I have told you or against you, however do not be confuse stay with your conviction in me”
1 John 4:4 Says, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
You need God assurance and His grace in every of your steps
Sometime ago the Lord said to me, “my son I want you to be still, pay more attention to me this morning than ever before. I want to show you something that will embolden you more in your assignment”.
Without delay I left everything I was doing upstairs, came down stairs and sat in our living room.
*First thing I recorded that morning was my wife came down stairs about to leave for her business. She asked me a question, ‘’why can’t you turn on the lights instead of sitting in the dark’’? Honestly I do not see myself sitting in the dark; the way she perceived my situation while I sat in the living room doesn’t represent my situation in any way. Where I was seated, I could write a message clearly without omission of any word, that is how lighted the place was to me.
How do you perceive yourself? Do you see yourself with men’s mirror or God’s mirror?
*The second thing that I recorded that morning was my wife came back inside to notify me of an informed “problem” on her vehicle, which was not a problem at all, because the vehicle has an on board alert system for such problem.
I asked her, is there any alert shown on the dashboard panel? She said no!
Also we carried out a necessary checkup physically which also proved that the problem was invalid. But for one reason or the other her mind couldn’t just reset.
Learn how to reset your mind sensitivity alert
Thinking about senses, our senses are there mainly for the purpose of alerting us of especially imminent danger; however we need to learn also how to reset it back to its original state once the danger is averted.
Someone has earlier set my wife’s’ mind sensitivity alert to a “problem” and she doesn’t know how to reset her mind back to normal once she found out that the problem was invalid.
Example: Jesus disciples were stocked on previous information in John 11
7 and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”
8 “But Rabbi,” they said, “a short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you, and yet you are going back?”
9 Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who Walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light.
10 It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.”
In other word stop seeing the situation as if it will remain forever, all problems has expiration date. This simple mistake will always cause fear in our lives, except we have the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT.
Didn’t we have right to be afraid when the situation look scary and genuine?
Of course yes it’s in human nature to be afraid, but as a child of God we should not!
Why? The word of God tells us that “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
Information, Revelation, or Advice is to bring our attention to something, especially if things are not going right and there is possibility of a danger, however, as a believer we have what it takes to take action and destroy every fiery darts.
The right thing for any man or woman of wisdom or a child of God is to first of all pray; then carry out checkup based on the information we received and make necessary corrections if necessary. The word of God says “Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light”.
You may noticed that I said if necessary, the reason was because at times it might be that what they perceived, you have authentic information concerning the issue, then there is no cause for you to be alarmed.
Every child of God also has an alert system call the Holy Spirit!
Every time we’re afraid, it’s a signal that something is not right and it could be something we have prior knowledge of but we ignore the warning, or maybe we just gave a “window dressing” solution.
If you’re the type that has knowledge about scriptures, you might have read similar things that happened in the life of King Saul.
In the book of 1 Samuel chapter 15, everybody was giving Saul praises, except God Almighty. Why? He refused to obey the word of God in details. Samuel brought it to his attention, but Saul shifted Samuel focus to worship.
“Saul replied, “I have sinned. But please honor me before the elders of my people and before Israel; come back with me, so that I may worship the Lord your God.” So Samuel went back with Saul, and Saul worshiped the Lord. 1 Samuel 15:30-31.
Warning came to Saul, but Saul “window dressed” the warning for “worship”. Really! How could Saul act so foolishly? Well the reason was best known to him. But what I know is that from that moment peace eludes Saul, and he ended up lost unmerited kingdom that supposed to last for him and destroyed his next generation.
When the Almighty God becomes Samuel’s God to Saul that is a great signal…
Saul attention was on self, praises and accolades he was receiving from his people, but he completely relegated God to his “house maid”
I pray that we all will not be like that of Saul in the name of Jesus.
Lesson: The Lord said to me, Son no matter the oppositions, do not be distracted focus on your assignment, even if it’s come to death, you must boldly and prayerfully stand on your conviction.
“I AM WITH YOU”.
What is God telling you? Stick with it, knowing well that God is with you.
