Formidable Alliance! Holy Spirit!

2 Kings 3: 4 Now Mesha king of Moab was a sheep breeder, and he regularly paid the king of Israel one hundred thousand lambs and the wool of one hundred thousand rams. But it happened, when Ahab died, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel.So King Jehoram went out of Samaria at that time and mustered all Israel. Then he went and sent to Jehoshaphat king of Judah, saying, “The king of Moab has rebelled against me. Will you go with me to fight against Moab?”

You have to forge an alliance with the Holy Spirit and inquire of the Lord. He knows the mind of God and will help you to seek God’s face appropriately for direction in getting back what belongs to you. An alliance through the Holy Spirit will connect you to a favourably positioned individual, group, cooperation and make you favourably disposed to receive help. Elisha favoured Jehoram because of Jehoshaphat as in 2 Kings 3:14 And Elisha said, “As the Lord of hosts lives, before whom I stand, surely were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you, nor see you.

May the Holy Spirit, the formidable alliance not depart from you in Jesus mighty name. May the shield of favor, kindness and grace envelop you, and may help locate you at the right time for the fulfillment of God’s divine plan for your life. May you be carrier of favor that others will seek out for alliance in Jesus might name. Amen.

Shalom

Distraction Inevitable! Be Focused!

2 Kings 2:1 And it came to pass, when the Lord was about to take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. Then Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here, please, for the Lord has sent me on to Bethel.” But Elisha said, “As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So they went down to Bethel.

Situation, circumstances, well meaning people and not so well meaning ones will harmer on the facts of your life to distract and discourage you from your goal. You will be made jest off, your own perceived inadequacies will threaten your peace. You might second guess your ability to cope and be efficient in carrying out your task, fulfilling destiny.

Your master, covering, mentor, those things that gives you balance and stability, when they are taken away or been threatened to be taken away causes distraction. It most often makes you to lose focusing on God wholeheartedly to bring to pass His good pleasure in your life according to Philippians 2:13.  You have to learn to sift through all these and hold unto that which is needful, focus on the author and finisher of your faith – Jesus.

This was Elisha’s experience in 2 Kings 2:3 Now the sons of the prophets who were at Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that the Lord will take away your master from over you today?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent!”…..5 Now the sons of the prophets who were at Jericho came to Elisha and said to him, “Do you know that the Lord will take away your master from over you today?” So he answered, “Yes, I know; keep silent!”

 There will be those also who are not helping you with encouragement, neither are distracting you in anyway except as prying eyes, watching your every movement, waiting to see you fall, fail or falter like in 2 Kings 2:7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went and stood facing them at a distance, while the two of them stood by the Jordan.

Friends, you have to be sure and committed totally with faith to your calling. Distractions will come from everywhere once you start following your goal, distractions from places you least expect, please learn to stay true to yourself. Keep your destiny in sight, focus on Jesus Christ. What has the Lord shown you? What has He said in the scriptures? Trust those words as revealed unto you. It will be as the Lord has said. He is able that promised.

Shalom
