HIDE AND SEEK

II KINGS 6 : 24 & 25, 7 : 6 – 16

Israel besieged by King Ben Hadad of Aram;
Result: great famine in the city; Even the donkey’s
head and dove’s dung became a luxury!
The pride, power, potential and prudence of the king
of Israel were not of any use against the enemy!

Day of mourning and fasting!
No hope of deliverance!
Doom and despair!
Destruction and Death at the doorstep!

The land was besieged by the enemy, but the hearts
were besieged by the fear about the enemy!

But, GOD had caused the whole army of the enemy
to hear the clatter of speeding chariots and the
galloping of horses and the sounds of a great army
approaching! Assumptions and confusions; Chaos!
Consequently, the enemy ran away from there!

Yes, GOD overthrown the enemies in HIS own way!

But, that Victory was not of any use to the Israel,
at least for few hours, just because of one thing!
Yes, they did not know about the Victory!

Fear and famine gripped lives;
Not even thinking about deliverance!
Manipulation and blaming!
They continued to live the ‘ besieged ‘ life, even though
the actual besieging forces were scattered!

Even the information, about the Victory, was received by
them with suspicion and fear!
Slowly, it dawned on them that the enemy was defeated!
Famine to prosperity in no time!
Bondage to blessing in no time!
Trembling to gathering in no time!
Donkey’s head to fine flour in no time!

GOD accomplished what they could not do,
But, gathering the spoil was their responsibility!

Continue in the assumption and die in famine!
Or step out in faith and enjoy the prosperity!

Dear friend,
Do you know most of the times we pray for the
deliverance even when we have that?
Do you know the assumptions and realities of
yesterday besiege our heart today and we live
a sub standard life?
Do you know the VICTORY our LORD accomplished
on the CROSS?
Do you know the new position and possession allotted
to you because of HIS death and resurrection?

In the case of Israel, the besieged life lasted only for
few more hours; But, in our case, how many of us
are living, for years, in bondage even though set free?

If we are in bondage, pray, GOD will give deliverance;
But if you are free and instead living in bondage because
of your assumptions and lack of knowledge, is it not
your blunder?

CHRIST, not just, defeated the enemy on the cross, but
also have given us all the spiritual blessings and position
in heavenly places !
If you know the TRUTH, indeed, the TRUTH will set you free!

Go up and possess!


 I PRAY THAT YOU WILL BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND
THE INCREDIBLE GREATNESS OF POWER FOR US
WHO BELIEVE HIM. THIS IS THE SAME MIGHTY
POWER THAT RAISED CHRIST FROM THE DEAD
AND SEATED HIM IN THE PLACE OF HONOR AT
GOD’S RIGHT HAND AT THE HEAVENLY REALMS.
(EPHESIANS 1 : 19 & 20 )
