“For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it.[One may hear God’s voice] in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed. Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction. That He may withdraw man from his purpose and cut off pride from him .” Job 33:14-17
One of the key factors in contending for your case is to know God’s story about you. What does God say about you?
David -I have provided for myself a king among his sons.” 1 Samuel 16:1
Gedeon – When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” “Pardon me, my lord,” Judges 6:12
Jeremiah – “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
Job: Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” Job 1:8
Samson: Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean [thing]: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death. Judges 13:7
John the Baptist: Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Matthew 11:11
Jesus: “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1:30-33
Ladies what is God saying about you? See, the enemy speaks about you… your failures, faults and shortcoming, in other words, he accuses you. But God, what He says about you is what is according to His Will. He is focused on your destiny, your part in the kingdom.
Today, I encourage you to
PRAY ACCORDING TO HIS WILL. IT WILL BE DONE. YOU MAY ASK, BUT HOW DO I KNOW WHAT GOD WANTS? HE DESPERATELY WANTS TO REVEAL HIS WILL TO YO. HE DOES! CAN YOU ALLOW HIM TO TALK TO YOU? LISTEN TO HIS COUNSEL?
