Giving the enemy no chance
Beloved, Christians are special people. Though they are in the world, but are not of the world. They do not belong to the world. They are the people of God, people of heaven. They belong to God Almighty. If you can believe in Him today, you shall have the privilege of son-ship, and be called His people, for all that receive Christ by faith become automatically the sons of God by adoption.
This special privilege enjoyed by the people of God is the envy of our enemy the devil. Thus, he opposes all the good things God has for His people. The enemies are fighting to ensure they do not have access to the opportunities of open doors the Almighty bestowed to them.
1Cor. 16:9 says, “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries”
God has opened a great door of opportunities for us, but enemies block the way and prevent us from entering and taking what belongs to us. But God has heard our cry and has decided to bring our enemies to submission. As it was in the days of David, when God helped him to recover all that the enemies took from him, so it is going to be now, as we pray in the special programme entitled: “And the enemies submitted.” God is determined to intervene in our situation and subdue our enemies. This time, God will make us to recover all in Jesus name.
1Sam. 30:8 and 18 says, “And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And He answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. And David recovered all that the Amalekites had carried away: and David rescued his two wives.”
You cannot afford to miss this special occasion, because there are so much to gain and lots to lose, if you absent yourself. This is because it is time for that enemy troubling your life to surrender. God is going to raise His banner very high over His people to prove He is our glory and defender. So, for your enemies to submit, you must come under His banner. You cannot pursue and overcome your enemies, if you are not under the banner of the Almighty or belong to His Kingdom.
Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” If you desire every good thing in this world and want to be in heaven at last, you must seek the Kingdom of God first. The enemy must have hindered you from having abundant life Christ brought to us. However, at this special meeting, whatever the devil has done in your life all these years or has taken away from you must be retrieved so that you have all round blessing.
Psalm 50:15 says, “And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me”.
God says His people should call upon Him whenever they are in trouble and He will answer them. There is no doubt that we in this part of the world, especially Nigeria are presently in all kinds of trouble. But thank God, He has promised to supply all good things to us come this weekend, as we call upon Him.
Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is of the Lord and the fullness thereof.” God owns everything. He has nothing to do with car, building, husband and wife, employment or whatever. We are the ones that have something to do with the things of this world. And you are supposed to enjoy them as a child of God. That is why God asks us to go after what belong to us so that our joy shall be full. This time, God will make our enemies to submit and we shall take what belongs to us in Jesus name. Amen.
