But truly it is the spirit in man, even the breath of the Ruler of all, which gives them knowledge. Job 32:8 (BBE)
It’s not really about what we find in our hands, it has everything to do with what comes upon what we have to create that loud (amplified) effect.
That Rod that parted the Red sea, swallowed up the rods of the greatest magicians of that time, claved the rocks to provide water for 3 million people consecutively was an ordinary stick; a runaway fugitive from the claws of an enraged Pharaoh by name, Moses found it at the back sides of the mountains…but when the Lord Himself breathed upon it, the difference was clear! It became an instrument of rescue…
Again it’s not about what you have, or you found in those hands of yours, it’s all about what happens when the Spirit of God breathes upon it to produce such an amplified effect.
How could the sound produced by the wobbling limbs of 4 leprous men scare thousands of soldiers away to leave their barracks and all their possessions with which they came to war? (2 Kings 7:5-8). Well, it’s not really about that certificate of yours or what you studied in school either, when the breathe of the Almighty comes upon it; the world would stand in awe. At the end of the day, the success rating of man would be a direct product of how much the Almighty gave breathes to the works of his hands thus producing such amplified effect. All we need desire is that the breath of the Almighty comes upon all we do.
It seems to me as though God chooses the weak, feeble, timid, shy and fearful; breathes upon them and sends them forth. (1 Corinthians 1:27). The likes of Gideon, Moses, Joseph, Peter and Saul can very well testify to this. They were naturally not up to par, their abilities naturally would have not taken them so far, but when the Almighty gave breath to their nothingness, their abilities were amplified- the world still studies their success stories today.
I heard someone say, ‘If you can observe well enough, what you have is well enough’. How much more when the breath of the Almighty comes upon it? It becomes more than enough!
How could an ordinary stone picked just by a flowing stream bring down a warrior who had remained undefeated ‘since the days of his youth’ (1 Samuel 17:40)? It must have been the breath of the Almighty upon those stones! In the midst of that little or seemingly nothingness as you may describe it- All you need is the breath of God to come upon it, you would be amazed what it would result in (Hab. 1:5).
As 2013 speedily rolls by, and 2014 flows through swiftly, please understand that an end can only come to frustrations, pains and anxieties when the Almighty gives breath to the works of your hands and all that you do. Please crave for this blessing today.
Lift up your eyes, lift up your hands and say ‘I receive that breath now- upon my health, my family, my business, my finances, my career, my relationship, my certificate, thereby I shall do valiantly’.
