You are welcome to the April edition of El Shaddai Heritage!
You have every reason to give thanks to God for keeping you alive in the midst of this pandemic, many have died but here you are still breathing and still standing!
God has indeed done you well.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.”
Nothing takes our God by surprise. When the devil and his agents planned and executed the COVID 19 project, God was fully aware, the interesting thing about this fiasco is that God did not sound a serious warning to His children about what the devil was planning. You could ask the question why? Because this is nothing compared to the power that God has deposited in us.
1 John 4:4
“Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the World”
God has made provision, adequate provision for His children to overtake and overcome every strategy and attack of the devil.
That is why you need to be careful about the choices you make in life.
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
God is interested in the smallest detail of your life. Your life does not belong to you and you can’t live your life as though it is yours.
1 Corinthians 6:20
“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
It’s not all that glitters that is gold.
As a child of God, it’s imperative that you listen for the voice of The Holy Spirit and you follow His directions because He will always speak.
However, if you are not careful and sensitive, pride and self will not allow you to walk or even hear the voice of the Holy Spirit.
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”
When you deliberately choose to disobey the leading of The Holy Spirit, you begin to hear the voice of your flesh.
“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
When you choose to be carnal, you begin to hear the voice of your flesh.
“Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.”
The desire of the flesh often leads to death. Death here often does not mean physical death, it could mean being cut off from your destiny helpers. Destiny helpers are people God has put in your way to assist in moving you away from the place of affliction.
They might not look like it, you might even think you are smarter than them.
Missing a single destiny helper could be a catastrophe because often it’s a chain, one leads to the other but when you feel you are wise in your own eyes and break the chain, you will discover you can’t connect to the next person on the chain because the ladder is broken.
Death here could also mean going in the wrong direction, the truth is if you are schedule for a particular destination and you go the opposite direction, except you make a U-turn, you will never arrive in your divine location. When you keep walking in the wrong direction, every thing is alien to your destiny, they just don’t fit in.
That explains the reason why so many children of God are going through hardship, it’s not because God has abandoned them but because they have refused to walk in the direction prescribed by The Holy Spirit.
The good news is that it’s not too late.
Psalms 136:1-26 states that His mercy endureth forever.
It is only when you walk in the path that God has laid down for you that you can eat the milk and honey of the land you are in.
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:”
Psalms 23:1-6 clearly explains our line of thought.
Let the Lord be your shepherd today and you will not lack any good thing.
We shall see you next month at the May edition of El Shaddai Heritage.
Stay Connected To Jesus!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
