The Phaneroo Devotion: When They Fight You – 2
Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Peter 4:14 (MSG): If you’re abused because of Christ, count yourself fortunate. It’s the Spirit of God and his glory in you that brought you to the notice of others.
The glory of God upon your life will attract persecution.
You cannot expect to rise above the norm, excel in your craft, defeat the odds, blaze new trails but escape the attack of men and women who either do not understand your success or are merely intimidated by it.
Our theme scripture is very succinct in expressing this truth. The Spirit of God and His glory in you brought you to the notice of others.
Recognise the fact that God’s work in and through you has destabilised hell enough for the devil and his minions to take note.
One man said that to avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing and be nothing!
That is not your story! So, don’t indulge in any pity party. Rather, celebrate the fact that you are visible enough in the realm of Spirits to attract attention.
You are a burning and shining light! (John 5:35). Gentiles are coming to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising(Isaiah 60:3). The veils of invisibility have been ripped away from your countenance. The men and women of this world are sitting up and taking notice of you and God’s glory radiating from your spirit.
FURTHER STUDY: Luke 6:22, James 1:12
GOLDEN NUGGET: Recognise the fact that God’s work in and through you has destabilised hell enough for the devil and his minions to take note.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the glory that is upon my life. I am a child of light, a city set on a hill and cannot be hidden. I rejoice in this truth and do not wither because of persecution. I am vindicated by the Spirit all the days of my life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
