Topic: Standing With God [Friday September 15, 2017]
Scripture: “…As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” I kings 17:1
Thought For The Day: Your stand with God compels your generation to stand at attention for you.
From our anchor scripture, the Bible reveals that Elijah had a stand with God at the place of prayer. That was what commanded the attention of his generation.
When Israel sinned against God through the worship of Baal, Elijah brought the whole of Israel to a standstill for God. This means that your stand with God compels your generation to stand at attention for you.
A stand with God was also the secret of David. He was so passionate for God’s Presence and that was the only desire of His life (Psalm 27:4).
What David became was not written on his face; it was his content that determined his greatness.
The problem of our generation is that people think that a man’s future is written on his face; people think that they can determine your future by the look of your face. When they look at your container, they think that they can determine your content. It is impossible!
Beloved, do not allow anyone judge you according to your outward appearance.
Rather, develop a buoyant spirit by living a life of consistent prayer and intimacy with God.
Remember this: Your stand with God compels your generation to stand at attention for you.
1. Develop a stand with God at the place of prayer.
2. Do not allow anyone write you off in destiny.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for a perpetual stand with You at the place of prayer. Help me LORD, to fulfil my destiny, in Jesus’ Name.
