“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love”.
(Ephesians 1:4 KJV)
Child of God, never come to the point where you begin to think the devil will fold his hands and play dead and watch you succeed. The scripture says that the thief cometh not but to steal, to kill and to destroy. But it did not stop there. It says, but I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly. So let the thief do the job he is anointed to do. His assignment is to come, but he will not succeed because the Bible tells us that they shall surely gather. Why do you fret when they gather? Just let them gather because the scripture says they shall be scattered for your sake. I declare that whatsoever has gathered against you will be scattered!
For instance, the scripture says the sons of Gilead drove Jephthah away because he was the son of a harlot. By the way, Jephthah means God will make a way. Look at how God was orchestrating his path. Ever before the problem came he has already been named, God will make a way. This simply means that the devil cannot take God unawares. God is not wondering how he is going to bring you out of your predicaments, even though most of us reason this way, and as a result, we lack peace. Ever before you were born, the plans of God concerning you had been concluded. That is why he allowed you to be born. He didn’t wait for you to be born before thinking of what to do with you.
The Bible says if any man be in Christ, he is a new specie of being that has never existed before. It says you are his workmanship, God’s master piece created in Christ Jesus unto good works. That means anything you are involved in has to be good because you have a mandate of good works on your life. God is committed to your life. The whole of heaven is committed to your well-being, to your success and for you to achieve results.
