Topic: Be Positioned For The Lord’s Deliverance
‘’Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.’’ Psalm 32:7 KJV
You see, there is no challenge in this life that God has no answer for; no matter how big it is. The problem is that, at times we are too docile; we take spiritual things for granted. Some of us have allowed our minds to get into the way of how to obey God. No one can obey God on your behalf. All I can do for you is to show you what God has shown me. It is now left for you to do what you want with it.
In the book of 2 Chronicles 20:20, King Jehoshaphat declared to his people: “…Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper” (KJV). If you believe in God’s prophets, you will succeed. But if you choose not to, the reverse shall be the case. No one is going to beg you to follow instruction or beg you to pray. It is up to you but know that how you are positioned matters.
You see, we cannot truly articulate what the enemy plans in the spirit, but the truth is that God will not leave us without adequate protection. However, the onus is on us to position ourselves strategically so that mighty deliverance of God shall be shown in our lives. We have His protection but often, we leave His canopy. Consequently, we become vulnerable. Afterwards, people will be saying, ‘’where is God?’’ But God has always been where He is seated. He has not left us without adequate protection.
The Word of God is replete with tools that God has made available to us. It is up to us to develop high spiritual sensitivity. It is not everywhere you should go. I declare that the sun shall not smite you by day nor the moon by night. Every plan of the wicked against you will not happen. No plague and no calamity shall come near your dwelling place.
Psalm 32:6-11, 34:5-22
