Now when the Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to search for David. And David heard of it and went out against them. And David inquired of God, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You deliver them into my hand?” The Lord said to him, “Go up, for I will deliver them into your hand.”
I Chronicles 14:8‭, ‬10 NKJV

Your rising and exaltation in life are not without challenges. In fact, with every new level God will bring you into there will always be warfare to fight. The truth about the life you must never ignore is that every giant stride the Lord leads you to make will attract the enemies against you.

However, you must also know this, the God who has been with you in the ages past, led you thus far, and lifted you will not at this time leave you or forsake you here. It is not in God’s character to allow you to become stranded, helpless, and vulnerable to the enemy’s plots. He is forever with you to help you, defend you and deliver you from every onslaught of the wicked ones.

When opposition arises, God will not want you either to ignore those that are incensed against you or to be afraid of them. His command to you is to stand your ground in Him alone, resist them and not flee from them. If you will be courageous and boldly go out against them in the strength and power of the LORD Almighty God, you will surely triumph over them in victory.

The God who has enthroned you is always with you to keep you on the throne till you serve His purposes and accomplish His mandate for your election. May the Lord Jesus Christ equip you with courage, faith, and divine power to remain strong and resilient till you fulfill His purposes for your life in Jesus’ name. Good morning.

Your brother,
