Throughout the generations, the enemies of God’s people have been amazed at the fact that the weapons of God’s people are not carnal, but mighty through God (2 Corinthians 10: 4). More often than not, the weapons of God’s people usually appear weak and insulting to their enemies such that they often take them for granted. But the Bible says God uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wisdom of the wise.
The children of Israel marched round about the walls of Jericho with their enemies, archers and shooters, looking down on them. They circled the wall day after day with their enemies laughing them to scorn, little did they know that was God’s weapon to pull down that great wall. The army of Jehoshaphat did not need to shoot an arrow against the three hosts that came against them but God defeated them with the weapon of worship (2 Chronicles 20) because it was His battle.
The book of Esther shows us the supremacy of God’s purpose over the desires, plans and wishes of man or the devil’s strategies. When you align with the purpose of God for your life, you become as indestructible and invincible as God is. Your life will be a miracle going somewhere to happen and the plans of the Lord for your life will be a reality. Determine to cooperate with the Lord and submit to His dealings over your life and you will see God make of your situation a story of His Glory.
PRAYER: Father, I choose your way and pattern. I refuse to insist on my ideas to do your will. It is your battle and mine is the victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
