An Appointment from Entrapment

An Appointment from Entrapment

 

 

An appointment from entrapment

Mishap that sets free

Fires that set free

problems that propel

Difficulties that are opportunities

Hindrances that bring a dance

Barriers that birth blessings

Hurdles that are stepping stones

Stormy winds that fulfil His will

Obstacles that bring miracles

Opposition that brings promotion

Rejection that bring exaltation

And divine direction in stagnation

Opposition that brings promotion

Changes your position

And your playing field

Naomi’s trials were a set up fir a lift up

Abraham’s trial brought laughter- Isaac

Barren Rachel had a double portion

Rebekah was rewarded with Joseph

The fruitful bow- carrier of a great dream

Hannah was festooned with Samuel

A great prophet and Judge of God

Elizabeth- the barren was given John the Baptist.

Daniel saw and angelic visitation in the lion’s den

The Hebrew three were set free by their fire

When Paul and Silas sang in their prison

God was provoked to fight for them

Pharaoh pursuit paved the way

for the parting of the Red Sea.

So in your stormy wind expect

The fulfilment of God’s will

Watch out for a breakthrough

In your night…in your fire…

in your prison…in your entrapment

In your mishap…in your hindrance…in

your opposition will bring promotion

your barriers will birth blessing

your obstacles will bring miracles

God will surprise you, exceed your expectation

He will use the situation to bring glory and honour to His name

He will use your adversary to push you into your destiny

Just like it happened to Joseph and David

‘I was paralysed until my toy mishap’  was the caption of  the metro newspaper which told the story of a teenager  Olivia Johnson-wilder who, following an injury that broke her back thought she would never walk again. She was paralysed from her waist down after fracturing he spine in five places hen she fell from a window . She had no feelings in her legs and thought she would spend the rest of her life in the wheelchair.

Two months later she got stuck in a plastic car and  tried to free herself. In the process she regained feelings in her legs. Appointment from entrapment!

 

 

Seeing the Invisible

16   Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

17   For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

18   while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

2cor4:16-18

 

Christ Is Preached

12   But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel,

13   so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; To Live Is Christ

19   For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,

20   according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.

21   For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

 

Phil1:12-13,19-21

10   that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,

11   if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Pressing Toward the Goal

12   Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

13   Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,

 14  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Phil3:10-14

 

 

8                                                                                                                                                                                       

Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word; Ps148:8

 

 

Cast Down but Unconquered

7     But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

8     We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9     persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed —

2Cor4:7-9
