DO NOT LET THE “MOSQUITO” PERCH (so it does not bite)
I was studying at night when I noticed a mosquito was having a field day around me. Before I knew it, I noticed I had gotten two spots from a bite I did not feel initially- one on my legs and another on my arm.
I stood up and looked for the mosquito repellant cream. I rubbed it on myself. If I don’t allow it to perch on me then it cannot bite me. Afterwards, there were no more harassments.
Friend, what is on you determines what comes around you and what feels confident and comfortable to perch on you. There are things that will stay on you until you arise to do something about it.
What is on you? The Prophet Isaiah said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me…” Wherever the Spirit of the Lord is there is joy and liberty. If it does not look like what the Spirit of God will bring then it is something to resist.
If you are not careful, others will see on you what you do not see upon yourself. Jericho was shut down and tight in fear because they were afraid of the Israelites but God spoke to Joshua that Jericho had mighty warriors. They had been weakened by divine fear.
“And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.”
Joshua 6:2 KJV
Potiphar recognised that there was something on Joseph. Pharaoh did the same. They both enjoyed the grace upon Joseph’s life. If your recognition is poor or altered, your ability to appropriate the blessing will also be altered.
There are things you rub on that repels every activity that limits a man, a marriage, a business or even a calling- the Word of God and Prayer are in that category.
A man who knows what is written can never live like a victim and and a man who speaks what has been written will surely live as more than a conqueror.
Paul knew the power in both so he told the Roman church that when strange things attempt to perch upon you must be able to respond like the anointed:
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”
Romans 8:31 KJV
“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
Romans 8:37 KJV
From now, stand and sound like the anointed and not the defeated!
