“After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines…thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp…”
(1 Samuel 10: 5)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Whilst the Philistine soldiers were encamped on the hill of God, a company of prophets were going about their assignment without fear. One would have imagined that the prophets would go into hiding because of the Philistine military occupation, but they didn’t. They didn’t bow because of enemies.
Friend, God says, don’t bow because of the enemies against you. Don’t allow your enemies to chase you into obscurity. Don’t allow the wickedness of people around you to intimidate you. Don’t bow in fear because of haters and adversaries. Don’t allow demonic encampments to prevail against you.
You need not live in fear simply because some people don’t like you; you need not go into hiding because some men are conspiring against you; don’t be overtaken by any wickedness of the wicked; don’t allow the enemies of your destiny to set the agenda for your life. Don’t bow because of negativity. Refuse to be intimidated by any conspiracy.
If God be for you, no man and no power can successfully pull you down. If God is on your side, it doesn’t matter how many people are against you, they will fail. The presence of enemies is God’s opportunity to give you a new victory.
Focus on God and stop making the opposition against you feel more special that they should. Theirs is to conspire against you, but yours is to defeat them again and again.
1 John 4: 4 sums it up: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
Pray With Me: Lord, I refuse to hide because of enemies; I will defeat them again and again, in Jesus’ name!
