The Lord opened my eyes to see something from the book of Zech 1:18-21 and I want you to pay attention and see this thing as its because we often blame people of not working hard, being lazy or not making sound discission , there are beutiful ladies with good character , good education yet can’t find a husband , young men with good qualifications and talents yet can’t make progress. There are pastors especially in America who are now atheist because they did everything they know yet no sign of God in the midst of his people, no miracles, church is not growing so they give up and say there is no God. But lets explore this spiritual reality, if you don’t believe in the bible don’t waste your time.,
The Four Horns and Four Craftsmen
18 Then I looked up, and there before me were four horns.
19 I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these?”
He answered me, “These are the horns that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.”
20 Then the Lord showed me four craftsmen.
21 I asked, “What are these coming to do?”
He answered, “These are the horns that scattered Judah so that no one could raise their head, but the craftsmen have come to terrify them and throw down these horns of the nations who lifted up their horns against the land of Judah to scatter its people.”[a]
This Four Horns means forces that has laid mines on people’s path / destinies that no matter how hard you work or try yet you will come out with nothing and that’s why many people resolved to excell through diabolical means because they have tried everything. But this kind goeth not but by praying and fasting Math 17:21 . Just as God is no respecter of persons the devil also don’t respect color , education or your background, the only language the devil hear is the language of power.
The force of faith is the only way to silence this demonic forces eph 6:16 or you remail at the same spot. But this thing called faith is a real 24/7 work, it takes more from you to build a robust faith that rely totally on the verdict of the Word than to do your regular eight hrs daily work.
The devil will mount pressure on you from every angle, from friends and relatives to ensure you don’t flow in faith, people will mock your moves and talk about you but you must overcome all this hurdles to ride in victory. However other people you know may not face the same level of challanges you face because what a man carry, the deposits in you is what determines the fight. Its time to build up spiritual energy for a forceful change of level.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
