📖: 1 Kings 18:45-46
Confession: Deuteronomy 28:2-3
Our God is El-Shaddai, the God who blesses us with all kinds of heavenly blessings. God’s promises and blessings are for those who have relationship with Him, who are obedient to His Word and walk with Him. As Christians, we need to sit back and reflect on all the things God our Heavenly Father has blessed us with physically and spiritually and be able to appreciate His love and care for us. God’s blessings are new everyday and can manifest in the midst of our daily lives.
To overtake is to catch up with and pass, as a race; to move ahead of in achievement, production, or score, or to surpass others.
According to the book of 1 Kings 18:46 says “Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel”.
Proverbs 8:35 says “For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord”. Every good gift and blessing we receive, comes from God. His grace is sufficient for us (2 Corinthians 12:9). If we are obedient, any challenge that comes our way, we shall overcome and it will become a blessing (Deuteronomy 28:1-3). God will demonstrate His power and strength in our lives, as He assisted Elijah the prophet to outrun Ahab, who rode on a chariot. God increased his speed so he was able to outrun Ahab. Queen Esther was able to move past other virgin maidens to become the queen (Esther 2:17). When the Hand of God is upon us, He will give us extraordinary strength that will enable us to grow from strength to strength (Psalm 84:7), catch up with others, and overtake those that have gone ahead of us in the race of life.
As Christians, no matter the challenges we face, God shall command His blessings upon us, increase our speed to outrun those ahead of us. We shall overtake them in the race of life and in order to be overtaken by the blessings of God, we must have relationship with God, have faith, pray fervent prayers and believe. Through obedience, we need to be hearers and doers of His Word, and the Hand of God that came upon Elijah shall come upon us, to fulfilling our destiny. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) and He will demonstrate His power of speed upon us for greatness. For those yet to surrender their lives to Jesus, this is not negotiable, do so now, tomorrow might be too late! DO IT NOW!
PRAY THIS; in the name of Jesus, I repent of my sins, come into my heart and I will make You my Lord and Saviour. Stay connected! Stay focused! Go and overtake! Have a blessed day. Shalom!!!
