Summary: There is a Jesus agenda in every situation or location you find yourself in
May the peace of the Lord be with you.
Topic: IN EVERY SITUATION THERE IS A JESUS AGENDA
Acts 16:19-24 King James Version (KJV)
19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,
20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,
21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.
22 And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.
23 And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
24 Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
Beloved, when Paul cast out the demon from the girl who followed them saying "they are the servants of f God...". He saved the little girl from destruction and put the demon where it belongs.
But in doing this, he stepped on the toes of wicked men who were using the demon possessed girl to make money.
These wicked men dragged Paul and his people to the courts of law and made a case against them. They went to make the case and bore false witness against them to make sure they were guilty enough with evidence to be punished and thrown into jail.
These wicked me succeeded though and truly the servants of God were beaten with rods and them thrown into prison. They were thrown into the deepest part of the prisons.
Beloved, no matter what you do on this earth, good or bad, it affects people in two ways, to some positively and to others negatively.
So long as you remain a child of God, know that no matter how the wicked men of this earth or those influenced by demons and the devil himself are affected, whether positively or negatively they will use the situation to try to cause you pain and trouble that will end you in the worst places you can think of.
The aim of these wicked men are to distract you, slow you down from progressing speedily by winning all their people quickly to the Kingdom of light and to try all means to eliminate you from this earth so your God given assignment is cut short.
One thing they don't know is this, wherever they put us there are people who need Jesus.
They also forget that Jesus is the owner and controller of all things, people and places, including them and all they have. He therefore uses them to achieve His purpose according to His will.
We therefore ought to know that no matter how things turn out, we need to know that wherever we are or whatever we get into is a means for the fulfilment of the purpose of Jesus.
So instead of finding everything wrong with our situation and location, let's find everything right with where we are and what we are in and determine the purpose of Jesus so we allow Precious Holy Spirit to lead us in what we are in and where we are to fulfil the purpose of Jesus in the very situation.
When we are able to grasp this concept, we would not be worried about any situation at all, no matter what it is. This is what Paul meant by, whether he dies or lives he does so for Jesus.
Don't look at their wickedness but at the fulfilment of the purpose of Jesus to give God glory and allow the Spirit of Jesus to take charge and work, for *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else.
Prayer: Daddy strengthen me to go through all situations I face to allow the fulfilment of the purpose of Jesus as I go through the situation in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
