Count yourselves blessed in persecution

 

“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule


“You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

“You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat. “You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for.

“You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

“You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom

. “Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble.


Matthew 5:3‭-‬12 MSG

The more I understand God,The more I realise that my enemies are pushing me to my destiny

For you to understand what I mean by this let’s let’s read the Bible first

Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him. Now the Philistines had stopped up all the wells which his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, and they had filled them with earth.

Genesis 26:12‭-‬15 NKJV

The reason Isaac became a target of abuse it was simply because he was prosperous. For a long time I struggled to understand this part whenever someone would treat me bad or do nasty stuff to me ,I would blame myself  ,felt like I deserved it the more I would try to understand their actions and couldn’t find fault in myself I got depressed.

I became an object of easy manipulation….there are people out there planning and plotting  to pull you down..God designed it that way..you need blood thirsty people around you

 

Intact you should count it a blessing if the do it publicly…Friend as much as it was unfortunate for Isaac that his enemies were destroying his well ..it was God’s intention for him to find his permanent well.

Stop crying over closed door …we don’t have that prestige..if a door closes….think plan B..God is with you he has always been with you.he never abandon his sheep.

But take note God is more impressed by faith put into action.,All things work for the good to us his children since we are called by his name..

Friend wake up ,this is not the time and day to cry over stolen or lost opportunities…You are well equipped start afresh and better than your previous attempts.

  • I choose not to boast about my yesterday achievements,
  • I am not defined by my failed relationships
  • I am not defined by what my enemies say about me
  • Jehovah Tsada .. Lord our Warrior is by my side
  • I am equipped for bigger things
  • My enemies in their attempt to bring me down they are setting me up for promotion
  • Jesus died so I could be free from the Jezebel spirit…(the element of hurting you so you can be easily controlled due to desperation)
  • I am on a journey I can’t afford to relax… closed door ,means new missions

Hallelujah

Let’s go back to the same chapter vs 21

Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over that one also. So he called its name Sitnah. And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, “For now the Lord has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”
Genesis 26:21‭-‬22 NKJV

He went for another shot …they overpowered him yet again…but he started afresh till he found his rightful place wch he named Rehoboth – FOR THE LORD HAS MADE ROOM FOR US,AND WE SHALL BE FRUITFUL IN THIS LAND

 

We are born to be fruitful and to prosper  in everything we do .Submit your ways to the Lord , put your faith into action ,reach for greater heights…aim for the impossible .,start a new path…I see you are so close to your destiny…get on your knees and thank him for your situation…

Jesus when faced with 5000 men to feed no food to give them…he took that chance to teach us a big lesson you mustn’t forget, He thanked God for providing for them,..He is a good God.

 

Then Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, gazed into heaven, and gave thanks to God. He broke the bread and the two fish and distributed them to his disciples to serve the people— and the food was multiplied in front of their eyes !
Mark 6:41 TPT

Overcoming your insecurity

“Our competence comes from God. He has made us competent.” 2Co 3:5-6 NIV Insecurity can sideline you. When you feel like you’re unqualified and unworthy of success, self-doubt can make you act in ways that sabotage your chances to be successful. The truth is, it’s impossible to live for long on a level that’s inconsistent […]

Today, practice humility

“Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” Mt 23:12 NLT Paul had one of the greatest ministries the world has ever known, yet he said of himself, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief” (1Ti 1:15). When people told Paul […]

In obedience is Authority

being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete. 2 Corinthians 10:6 ESV The devil is just a fallen angel who is powerless and Jesus made a public humiliation of him on the cross thus he is under the feet of every Christian since we are joined to Jesus Christ by faith. If […]

Outward looks mean nothing

Commend not a man for his beauty; neither abhor a man for his outward appearance. The bee is little among such as fly; but her fruit is the chief of sweet things. The works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works among men are hidden. Many kings have sat down upon the ground; and […]

Change your thinking

“You will spread out to the right and to the left.” Isa 54:3 NIV God told His people: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!” (Isa 43:18-19 NIV). So, if you’re asking God for a vision, or to enlarge the one He’s already given you, […]
