As a single years ago, I was searching for a flat to rent. I eventually got one that I liked, really liked. I only had a year’s rent and the landlady wanted payment for two years. But I had peace about that flat indicating that God would want me to have it. While I was still negotiating with the landlady, I had a dream. In that dream, I saw a hand that extended a key to me.
Before I could take it, another hand appeared and snatched it! So I got a couple of scriptures and went offensive with prayers! Unknown to me, the landlady was already in talks with someone who was willing to pay for three years! The talks failed and I got the flat! The Philistines had come to attack the children of Israel and to claim their field of lentils.
At the sight of the Philistines, everyone fled except for a man named Shammah. The Scripture tells us that Shammah, “…stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory” 2 Sam.23:12.
When what you sense is yours comes under any threat, defend it by going on the offensive with strategic prayers! Don’t let anyone walk over you because you are a Christian!
Christianity is not weakness! Your victory is God’s victory! Your success is God’s success!
