This is not the year to be enemy-centric. When people are not properly taught how to engage in spiritual warfare, they become enemy-centric. The enemy is not the issue here. David did not waste time with the Amalekites, instead, he went to God. God is the answer. The presence of God is where you receive strategies and the moment you receive a strategy, success is guaranteed; sweatless victory is sure.
One of the best things that happened to me was when I learnt to do what I call “early morning conference with Jesus”. When I started, God began to show me deep things I never knew. My Christianity became experiential and I became addicted to his presence. The presence of God will give you deep things. No power will stop you this year in the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
Let’s learn to receive strategies from God. Please don’t jump! This is the year to pray, listen, receive and then move. The closer you come to God, the more sensitive you are to his instructions of wisdom. That is what is going to make you unbeatable. May the Lord be your guide. May you focus more on God this year. Remember that the enemy is not the problem. The greatest enemy of man is man himself. Most of the things that attack people are not from without but from within. The best connection is divine connection. It makes all the difference.
When God backs you up to succeed, no power can stop you, no power can mess up with you. Receive grace to remain connected this year. Receive grace to be sensitive to the leadings and promptings of the precious Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus. Receive grace to learn to be addicted to the presence of God and grace to walk hand in hand with God so that his purpose will be fulfilled in every facet of your life in the mighty name of Jesus.
Ask God for that grace. Ask for grace to be at the right place at the right time. Ask for grace not to make impulsive moves. Ask for grace to depend on divine strategies. The greatest general in the whole universe is God himself, he is the Jehovah Sabaoth. The Lord of hosts is his name. When he sends you he will back you up. Heaven will back you up to succeed in the name of Jesus Christ.
“Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence. As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence. For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him”.Isaiah 64:1-4 KJV
Have you taken note of the fact that the habit of focusing and waiting on God is becoming scarce these days? Everyone wants it fast and quick. The God habit of having to spend quality time just being in his presence is becoming scarce. A lot of people have formed the habit of docking God.
A time comes in the life of man when he requires the manifestation of God like oxygen. That is the time to pray. This scripture is more than a heart cry; it is not just a verbal proclamation. The presence of God will dissolve every doubt. The presence of God will break the barrier, shatter every fetter, break the chains, undo the yoke, suspend policies for your sake and guarantee that you succeed.
When the mountains are out of the way, you will have multiple breakthroughs, multiple open doors, multiple blessings of the living God and abundant joy. The secret of joy is the presence of God. Wait on him. Make up your mind to serve God this year according to his terms not according to your terms. He is the boss. God is the general, he is the field marshal. He is the one that has the best strategy but he will not throw it at you. You will get it only when you come to his presence, humble yourself and wait.
