 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14 KJV)

It is this word that became flesh that has offered us a position of confidence and started a chain reaction of divine transformation. This is what differentiates Christianity from other religions. If this quality of the word is not available, nobody will be able to take a stand on the word of God and expect a result. The devil also knows that if God says something, it will come to pass and produce result; this is what he has attacked from genesis till date. Sometimes what God is doing in your life that is visible is not really what God is doing in your life. Understand that there is a visible hand of God and there is a hidden work of God. It is a divine strategy of God to confuse the devil with the outward work while the inner work is ongoing.

You must never be confused about the work and move of God in your life. Every visible thing in your life will definitely change. The things that are hidden in your life are the permanent work that will not change. It is the strategy of God to divert the attention of the devil to the visible while the internal work continues and mature. God operates like this so that what he does can be hidden to you and the devil. You need to pray that the Lord will show you what He is doing in your life that is not visible to you and the devil. If others are confused and are in the dark, you must not be.

God takes us through hidden process so that the devil can be confused. The devil will be operating in assumption of upper hand just like the case of Jesus crucifixion which was a divine strategy. Don’t let your confusion give you direction. The attitude in such seasons of your life must be that of meekness. Just like Joseph, who went through some difficult dark moments but God meant it for good. God is not playing a game with you but with the devil, it is a game of divine wisdom to confuse him that God may take the glory.     

Prayer: Lord, I ask that you grant unto me the spirit of revelation to understand the hidden works you are doing in my life so as team up with it in Jesus’ name. Amen.
