The Light Daily Devotional – At the Fullness of Time III
Focus: At the Fullness of Time III
WORD FOR TODAY
When the Lord brings you to the limelight of great success and achievement in every facet of life; it is not time to merry but time to brace up for higher responsibility and challenges!
“Now when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines went up to search for David. And David heard of it and went down to the stronghold.” (2 Samuel 5:17 NKJV).
The implication of your emergence in any aspect of life is that you will become noticeable and more prone to attack. People’s attention will be drawn to you. Both your victory and fall will be a landslide because several battles will be put in place to validate your exaltation.
Therefore, when your time comes your responsibility and challenges increase. It is never a time to merry or sleep over your achievements but a time to tighten your belt against every resistance to the fulfillment of your mandate.
If there is any man the devil wants to destroy, it is the man who is set to fulfill his divine mandate. When the time of Jesus came to fulfill His mandate, He went fasting for 40 days. Even with this the devil still came. If the devil had succeeded; it would have been a major victory for him. So also is anyone who has come to the fullness of time.
+ What view or orientation do you have about life’s achievement?
Lord! As I increase my glory will not turn to shame in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Emphasis: Challenges and responsibilities of life grow with an increase in life’s success and achievements!
Have a Victorious Wednesday!
