BE POSITIONED FOR GOD’S VISITATION
Friday, 13 February 2015
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (KJV)
The Lord has not left you without adequate protection from satanic onslaught. He has made provisions for us, His children, knowing that as we climax the current age, satanic activities will be on the increase and the enemy will be shooting at random. Satan is not targeting anyone but is shooting randomly because he is nervous knowing that his end is close. If you leave the place where you have been divinely placed then you will be in jeopardy. You will give the devil an opportunity to shoot you, not because God wants that to happen, but because you have refused to do what God wants.
While praying in John 17, Jesus said, “Father, I do not ask that you take them out of this world but that you keep them with your word; for your word is truth. Sanctify them, set them apart, and separate them. They are in the world but not of the world.” God’s intention is not for us to partake in the pressures, challenges, and vicissitudes of life that are presently invading the nations of the world. Right now, there is a shaking across the world. There is shaking in every aspect of human life and the devil is absolutely in the centre of it all, but God is in control.
God is still sitting down. He is not nervous or anxious because He already knows what the end will be. But the Church has to be positioned correctly and has to take full advantage of the spiritual arsenal that has been made available to us. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 10:3-6, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds 😉 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled (KJV).” This action is needed so that we don’t expose ourselves to Satan’s random shooting; instead, be positioned in the provision that God has made. As you position yourself, I see God coming true for you and I see you testifying in Jesus’ name.
