Topic: Let No One Take Your Place
“And He answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” Luke 19:40 KJV
Today, a lot of people are praying against the devil when they should really look at their commitment. Many things we attribute to the devil are actually not the devil’s because the Lord took care of him over 2000 years ago. Didn’t you hear Jesus say, “it is finished?” Didn’t you hear Jesus say that all power in heaven and on earth has been given unto Him? So where is the devil? As a believer, Jesus has put you in Him. In Him we live, in Him we move and in Him we have our being. So more often than not, it is not the devil. The reason flies perch on a pot is because the pot is cold. A fly does not perch on a hot pot; flies represent demons.
Some people are attracting demonic activities around them: in their businesses, finances, health, families and in their marital lives. This is because they have lost their intensity. My assignment as God’s servant is to ensure that I give to you everything that God instructs me to so that I can say like Paul, “all that you have given to me, I have not withheld any from them.”
Beloved, indifference, lukewarmness and “I have arrived” mentality which we experience in the world, especially with spiritual people are signs of the end time. The scripture tells us that in the last days, iniquity shall abound and the love of many shall wax cold. Jesus said: “If His people hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.” Do you want stones to take your place? The truth is that if you hold your peace, there are stones, which are on the wings to take your place. When Saul messed up, he did not know that there was a David somewhere already prepared to take his place. May no one ever take your place in the Kingdom business or in your private endeavours in Jesus name.
