Topic: From Commotion To Promotion
God will not allow what will collapse you to confront you; He won’t allow what will finish you to face you.
SCRIPTURE: Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. – 1 Samuel 17:36
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God will not allow what will collapse you to confront you; He won’t allow what will finish you to face you.
It is confirmed that we are in a generation with so much commotion, challenges and confrontations. Some people have even come to believe that commotion is part of life. No wonder in the days of David, he faced a lot of commotions or confrontations. For instance, as young as David was he battled Goliath (1 Samuel 17:41-54). David was also literary on the run for his life. A death sentence was passed on him – King Saul wanted to kill him by all means (1 Samuel 19:1).
Now, David must have complained like most Christians do today, ‘Why all these battles? God does not like me? Where did I go wrong? What did I do? I pray, I pay my tithe, I am doing everything God said I should do, yet God allowed all these battles to confront me.’ But I think God may have whispered into his ears, ‘David my son, in all these things you are more than a conqueror’ (Romans 8:37).
Beloved, God will not allow what will collapse you to confront you; He won’t allow what will finish you to face you. So, that commotion in your life is a set up for your promotion. It was in confronting Goliath that David’s destiny opened up.
God is turning your life around this season, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: God will not allow what will collapse you to confront you; He won’t allow what will finish you to face you.
1.No matter what you may be passing through, never murmur against God or think that God does not love you. Don’t ever think God is against you!
2.In the face of confrontations or contradictions, develop a dogged faith, trust and confidence in God.
3.Know that inside that situation is your promotion.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank You because You won’t let what will conquer me to confront me. You won’t let what will finish me to face me. I receive the grace never to bow to the confrontations of life. Let my current trial set me up for my triumph in life O Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
