It takes your ways of life to determine your wins in life. Nothing happens by mistakes, there is always a force to every change you see in life. Life is a battlefield, whether you want to fight or not, you are already in the ring.
No matter how good you are, you will still have that one person who doesn’t like you. Even, God who is known as Love is hated by Satan. What does this mean? It simply means you cannot say you will never have an enemy in life. And who are your enemy? Anyone who doesn’t like you; and your enemy will always want to see fall. But, I have good news for you.
When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.Proverbs 16:7 KJV
Your focus is on how to please God and not your enemy. You cannot clean a building from the outside, it has to start from the inside, and God dwells in our inner man. So the following will enable us to live a life that is pleasing to God, therefore, making our enemy have no choice but to love us.
Until you are saved then you are not safe. You have to first surrender your life to the leading of Christ before you are qualified for God’s leading. You have to be empowered before you can be celebrated. You cannot use darkness to conquer darkness, and it takes light to shatter the power of darkness. Being born again transforms you from the realm of darkness to light.
It is not enough to be saved; you have to put your salvation into action through your kingdom stewardship. There are several ways to render your service to the kingdom in which the ultimate of it is soul winning to Christ.
And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.Daniel 12:3 KJV
The Fear of God
Most people think the phrase “the fear of God” is to be afraid or scared of Him. A friend of mine once told me why will I be scared of God? When I mentioned the subject of the fear of God. The fear of God means following God commandment or doing the right thing, such as avoiding sin or living a sinful lifestyle.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.Proverbs 1:7 KJV
Conclusion: the higher we grow in life, the more challenges we encounter. Challenge is equivalent to an adversary which is our enemy. Things will never work for you by mistake; you have to make it work. Your enemy is not your friend rather your friend can become your enemy. It will only take divine intervention to live above all odds. This intervention can be provoked through our decisions to be Born Again, be committed stewardship to the kingdom and walking in the fear of God.
