Proverbs 1:27-29, NKJV “27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 28) Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: 29) For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:”
We need to be living ready all the time. Don’t wait for devil to come after your life. NO! actively pursue him…resist. You are no threat to devil until you are ready to be consistent with the truth that you know. The kingdom of darkness is not afraid of inconsistent Christians. Everything Has already been done, we just need to believe it. Jesus already Defeated the enemy on the Cross of Calvary. We already have our Victory in Him. But the truth is that we often give the enemy more power than he actually has. The Lord Is your strong Tower, therefore no weapon formed against you shall prosper. I don’t know what you may be going through this very moment, but if you will put your trust in Him, He will See you through. Do not fear…Be lifted! Be encouraged! Be Blessed!
You & I as believers should be combat ready. Man Was Created at the end of the 6th day, everything was ready Finished for man. The way we behave under pressure proves the ‘real us’ and shows whether we are ready to go to the level of our Christian walk or not. Study the word daily to build up your faith and be spiritually ready all the time – because there are some good things Wants to give you but you may not be ready. Know that satan hates you so anytime you are about to make progress in life, he will bring you a problem to stop you, but just keep on keeping on because you have already won and you will have to be ready to fight the good fight of Faith all the time.
How will you feel when you see a person approaching danger, yet that person despises every counsel you give in an attempt to save him or her? I believe it hurts so much when people ignore all your attempts at helping them only for them to run back to you for help when they are now in a serious ‘mess’. Ignoring wisdom comes with dire consequences such as calamities, terrors and mockeries. Sometimes, when God is Speaking wisdom to us, we do not give Him attention. We often know what is right and the best thing to do, yet we end up doing things our own way. Later, when the troubles start coming our way and we begin to cry unto God.
Why wait to suffer injury and seek for healing when you can actually take wise steps to prevent the injury in the first place? Prevention is better than cure and so is precaution better than deliverance. Looking at the way you handle wise counsel concerning your life, are you sure God will gladly Respond to you when trouble arises (Prov 1: 28)? As Loving as God is, He will Come to our aid when we find ourselves in trouble. However, if you don’t learn to listen to Him and hear Him clearly in times of peace, can you pay attention and obey Him in your emotional state of anguish?
This is the time to love and fear God. This is the time to love and live according to knowledge. This is the time to build a good relationship with God and follow wisdom ahead of time. Let us seek wisdom while it can be found. Let us not wait till our days of trouble before we run to God for wisdom. Don’t wait for something bad to happen to you before you build up your Faith, no feed your Faith with The Word (grow spiritually) & be ready in any all the time. Get into The Word and make the Word of God First Place in your life, covering new issues that will come up. May God Help us, Amen!
Dear Lord, on daily basis there are so many issues and people I need to deal with and I need Your wisdom to know how best to go about everything. May I never ignore You Lord but Help me to cling to You in all things,
In Jesus’s Name, Amen!
