Topic: The Devil Will Not Stop You [TREM Devotional 9 January 2019]
“The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob…” Genesis 49:23, 24 KJV
I come your way today to tell you that the devil will not stop you. No matter how many shots the enemy throws at you, you will fulfil God’s purpose for your life. Even when his brothers were against him, Joseph never lost his focus because he knew what God had said concerning him. His brothers threw him into the pit but the pit could not hold him, because he wasn’t meant for the pit. He was simply too good for the pit. Beloved, you are too good to not drive your car! You are too good to not have your wedding! The devil is too late. If you are single, we shall see your wedding come to pass. If you are believing God for a car, we shall see you drive your car.
They sold Joseph into slavery but God was with him. Potiphar left everything in his house in the hand of Joseph but Potiphar’s house was not the destination. Don’t get comfortable in Potiphar’s house. Yes, it was good for that moment but that wasn’t the destination. Potiphar’s house was not the destination, therefore, the rug had to be pulled from under him because of the prophetic destiny he was carrying. Beloved, when God zeroes in on you, don’t expect everything to be all right. Many of us often pray “God bless me”. And when God now zeroes in, you think the devil will just fold his hands and be looking at you? No! He will come against you. But he cannot stop you.
Child of God, every promise of God doesn’t depend on you to bring it to pass. The power to bring it to pass is inside the Word. Your part is to believe it. All things are possible to him that believes.
