Topic: Your Stand And Your Shield [Thursday December 14, 2017]
Scripture: …As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. I Kings 17:1
Thought For The Day: Where you stand determines how you end in life.
From our anchor scripture above, Elijah stood before King Ahab and fearlessly declared that there would be no rain until he had declared otherwise. What an audacity! It is like a civilian walking up to a military General and dictator, someone like Idi Amin Dada of Uganda or Adolf Hitler of Germany and telling him that he would not have access to the treasury of the country which he governs until he or she asks him to do so. That person, no doubt, would be on a suicide mission.
Come to think of it, as brutal as King Ahab and His wife Jezebel were, what was it that gave Elijah the courage to make such utterance right before them and went away unhurt? It was because of his stand with God.
Beloved, where you stand determines how you end in life. Your stand with God guarantees your shield in life. Your stand on the Word of God, prayer, holiness or righteousness; your stand in speaking on behalf of God against satanic or human opinions, etc. facilitates your protection by God from the arrows of destruction of the enemy.
Today, I prophesy to you, as you determine to stand with God, I decree that you are protected and preserved from every calamity that befalls people in this season. Your life is shielded from every arrow of disaster in this December, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: Where you stand determines how you end in life
- Ensure that you maintain the Presence of God in your life at all times.
Never take any decision, act or move outside the Will and Presence of God.
Prayer: Lord, I ask that You eject the spirit of timidity from my life and inject in me the spirit of audacity. Help me to maintain Your Presence consistently at all times, in Jesus’ Name.
