Topic: Nothing Can Stop You [Friday April 6, 2018]
“For as long as the son of Jesse liveth upon the ground, thou shalt not be established, nor thy kingdom. Wherefore now send and fetch him unto me, for he shall surely die”. 1 Samuel 20:31 KJV
David was anointed by God to replace Saul. But the scriptures tell us that Saul will not give up. He wanted David dead. Every now and again, God will anoint you for something big but the enemy will not play dead. He knows you are destined for greatness, and so he will fight in order to limit you. I’ve come to announce to you that that devil is a liar! Whatever God has given you, there is no power, that will take it from you. No witch, no wisdom and no boardroom politics shall be able to take it from you. Surely, you will get to your God-ordained destiny.
Saul constituted himself into an obstacle and a hindrance, and he kept pursuing young David. But you see, David did not choose himself. He did not apply for the job. That is what favour does. You don’t have to apply; He just drops it on you. When favour is at work, you don’t qualify for it, you don’t earn it, He drops it on you. That is what will happen to you in the next few days. Something that you don’t qualify for will be your portion in the next few days. They will gather together and say that you are not qualified, but the God of all Grace will make it happen in your life. When it comes, don’t apologize for it. Just receive it and enjoy God’s goodness. Why do you apologize when God blesses you? You don’t have to apologize. It is grace! He could have done it for another person.
There are things in your life that you cannot explain because if care is not taken, you will be deceived to think that you achieved them by your efforts. Remember, it is God and God alone. Some people are upset about where you are now when you are just starting. Yes, I can tell you without any fear of contradiction that you are just starting. You are going to explode in every area! You will expand in every area!
