We look for God to be on our side when all God really desires is for us to choose His side! Have you ever had a plan or an agenda, and it was like something came in and completely wiped out everything you set in place? Well I’m letting you know my friend that the sabotage you experienced was God Himself. God has a perpetual agenda that He absolutely intends on manifesting. His time slots are of the utmost importance and when God is ready to move!….He is ready to move! The question is….”are you ready to go with Him?”
“13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
14 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?
15 And the captain of the LORD’S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.”
John 18:36- “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
“ WOW! If Jesus says that His Kingdom is not of this world then that means whenever He decides to appear on the scene, He absolutely intends to bring a much weightier and nothing less than eternal agenda with Him. The captain of the Lords host was none other than Jesus Christ Himself! He is a King who has an army! He is president and commander and chief of the armies of the Lord! God wants us to take away the burden of “this is my fight”, and allow it to be God’s fight. Because He is incomparable, there is nothing that can conquer Him. We stand in a fixed fight. The beginning strategy for gaining wisdom for our everyday battles is to take off the shoes you have ran this earth in, and stand in reverential awe of Him!
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
You will know who is on the Lord’s side based on their posture in and before the battle. If we are to be on God’s side then we must partner with His Kingdom. As Jesus stated ever so clearly (paraphrasing), “I am not for you or your adversaries , but depending on your next move while I’m standing right here, you can choose to position with me or get out the way! Either way, My Kingdom is about to move!”
