The Lord says, He brought you this way!
While I have been praying and in intercession for others, many people have been expressing how they are discouraged and how they are devastated and disappointed by their situations. And as sad as it makes me feel, some people have even expressed to me that they hate God or that God has left them and doesn’t love them.
Sometimes, life can take an entirely different turn than what we have expected. Sometimes, situations arises that even causes us to question God as to why certain situations are happening, or has happened, or why do we have to go through things, or why do things seem to get worse, before it gets better? It seems nothing ever goes as we have planned or hoped that it will go.
Sometimes, we want to take the shortest and easiest route to the blessings of God, but this not God’s plan for us. God desires that we be stronger, knowledgeable, and ready for the places and promises that He is leading us to.
And while in prayer and intercession, The Lord plainly and clearly confirmed somethings this morning as I was in “sincere prayer” and talking with The Lord. The Lord says…
“I don’t bring you a certain way so that you can fail, I brought you this way to teach you and to strengthen you not only for yourself but for others.
I know the way you should go, and the way that I desire to take you. I bring you the way which seems hard and unusual to you. I bring you through ways from which you cannot understand or comprehend, so that when you get to the place that I desire for you to be, you will be stronger and you will know that you could not have done it without me.
And My grace and My goodness will be your testimony to others. So just as sure and certain as you are in this “hard” place, I AM sure and certain to “suddenly” turn it around in your favor.
Just follow me and let me guide and lead you”
Just bless The Lord for His wisdom and His goodness. For He knows the way which we should go!
“When pharaoh finally let the people go, God did not lead them along the main road that runs through philistine territory, even though that was the shortest route to the promised land. God said, “if the people are faced with a battle, they might change their minds and return to Egypt,” Exodus 13:7.
Assignment from the enemy!
The lord continues to warn that some people are on an assignment against you. Yes, the enemy is on a mission to shut you down and to get you our of the will of God.
In the home, on the job, in family/ relationships, your health/ finances and even in the church and the house of God! He is using any and everybody that he can find and he is looking for any crack to squeeze into.
But don’t be intimidated or afraid of the enemy because his roar is bigger than his bite.
Actually, he is intimidated and afraid of the favor that he sees on you. So when an attack occurs against you remember that God has already warned you that this is only an assignment from the enemy but God has already given you the victory!
