POSITIONED TO BLAZE THE TRAIL
Categories: Daily Devotional
“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising”.
Isaiah 60:2-3 (KJV)
If you take a close look around you today, you will notice that the activities of the enemy has intensified, but the good news however, is that the grace of God abounds even much more. Like I have always said and it bears repetition, this is the best time for the believer to be alive; because while it is getting darker in the world, it is actually getting brighter in the church.
Daily as we watch events unfold on the global scene, it is becoming clearer that the nations of the world do not have answers for the myriads of problems that stare us in the face. From the never ending crisis in the Middle East to the financial crisis in Europe and America, the story is the same. What can we say about the natural disasters hitting the entire globe? Even in our own nation, Nigeria, we are yet to find a lasting solution to the issues of insecurity and poverty. It is therefore no coincidence, that God has gone ahead to reaffirm to us a word of assurance that in-spite of the onslaughts of the adversary His grace would avail for us now and in the years to come.
I am a firm believer that the time has come for believers to be rightly positioned to blaze the trail in every area of influence for the kingdom. If we serve a God who is an epitome of creativity, then we cannot afford to just fold our hands and watch others lead the way. The time to use our God advantage is now, and so we must begin to strategize on how to proffer solutions to the numerous problems of our world. Many will kiss the lips of he who has the right answer. Beloved, it does not matter if they like your face or not, the truth is many will surely kiss your lips if you have the right answer. Today, I release the grace of a solution provider upon you in Jesus name.
