KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 12:13 KJV’ Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
In Zechariah 9:9, the prophet Zechariah prophesied as follows,” Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.” This prophecy is evidently confirmed by the Lord Jesus in our key scripture. The events leading to this were that the high priest and the Pharisees had, decreed that anyone who sees the Lord must report Him to them, so that, He would be arrested. This meant the Lord could not come into the public domain. In the midst of this, the Lord would either have to continue hiding, or act on the word of God He chose to do what had been written about Him, caring less about the threats of the religious leaders None of the proposals of the Pharisees could be established. They were all set aside.
It takes faith in God to bring to pass what God has said. Remember that, there are always giants in every man’s promised Land. These giants are not there to stop you, but for you to overcome them, in order to make you strong to face later battles that would be coming your way. Acting on the word of God is what sets God into action, to bring to pass what He has said concerning you. If God has spoken, whatever the devil says does not matter, no matter how fearful it may seem.
When the twelve spies were sent by Moses to inspect the promised land; ten of them came with the ‘words’ of the people of the Land. They said, they were giants, and they the people of God, were like grasshoppers. Num 13:33 ” And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight”. Caleb and Joshua said to the people to stop considering the ‘words’ of the people, they are bread for us, and our God would deliver them, into our hands (Num 13:30). To bring God’s word to pass, you must never give attention to the word of the enemy, go ahead with what God has instructed and follow through to the end. The enemy may show up with dangerous threats, yet give no attention to any of these because they can never materialise, for God has put their words aside.
Whatever God has said concerning your health, business, marriage, and future, believe it and act on it
Thank you, Father for your word. Standing on your word or doing as you have said gives me the edge over the devil, and makes me bring your purposes to pass. I enjoy a stream of blessings because I act on what God says.
Prov 4:20 KJV” My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee’.
