There is never anytime that you are out of God’s hands; you may be struggling through life but you are always in His Hands. He is holding you, shaping you and getting you fit for where He is taking you. God is irrevocably committed to the vision He has shown you. That genuine God-given vision is God’s way of saying, “This is what I am committed to doing with your life”, and this vision is different from what you want to make of yourself out of ego or ambition. He says, “Every time you are on this road, I am with you, but if you get out of this road I am not involved. As long as you are cooperating with that vision, I am involved because this is what I am doing with your life.” God will tell you what He will contribute to your life but any other thing apart from that is not from Him and He will not let the enemy prevail over you.
He says “Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.” That the devil gathers and musters some strength is not your business, because he will surely gather. Once the devil sees you smiling, he will gather. If he sees you crying, he will gather. If you are filled or hungry, he will gather. In fact, God will set a table before you in the presence of your enemies; therefore, the enemy is not your business. Your business is with the Father that set that table before you. He takes care of the enemy; you just follow His schedule and plan for your life.
The vision of God for your life is greater than the life you are presently living. When God called Abraham, He said, “I have made you the father of many nations”, even though physically they were only two in the house. From that time onwards, Abraham had to believe that word and start working out the divine process that would lead to the manifestation of that word. Till today, whenever anyone becomes born again, the vision of Abraham is still coming to pass.
In the business of your destiny, you are in the manifestation department while God is in the revelation department. The revelation is what God is going to give you; the manifestation is what you are going to do. How much you manifest of what God planned for you is your responsibility.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace not to limit the manifestation of the vision you showed me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
