Topic: Sit Down And Rest In Him [Saturday April 7, 2018]
“And David abode in the wilderness in strong holds, and remained in a mountain in the wilderness of Ziph. And Saul sought him every day, but God delivered him not into his hand.” – 1 Samuel 23:14 KJV
According to the scriptures, Saul wanted to stop David, but he failed woefully. You see, when God does it, you become unstoppable. He takes the responsibility of fighting on your behalf. No wonder He said: “Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked”. (Psalm 91:8 KJV)
In other words, just sit down and rest in Him. You will see what God will do to those who said you will not survive. Those who said you will never marry, they will see you marry. They will bite their fingers. They said you will never make it in life until they say so. Wrong! They will be disappointed. It is a dangerous thing to trifle with a child of God. Whosoever touches you has touched God. You are the apple of his eyes. Just like the pupils of your eyes are always protected when somebody wants to poke it; that is the way God protects you. It is dangerous to trifle with God.
Beloved, you are so expensive. You are an expensive cargo! You are precious in the sight of God. You are so precious! You have been chosen from amongst the crowd. God Himself said He has chosen you. You didn’t choose yourself. He chose you and if He chose you, He has a plan for your life.
Saul was pursuing David from cave to cave. You see, that is what jealousy does. You may even be carrying big things in your hands but you will be running after little things. Can you imagine Saul a king, running after a little boy and facing humiliation? Your enemies will be humiliated. The dreams they have against you will never come to pass. I bless you today!
