DON’T BE SATAN’S FOOTBALL
Memory Verse: For the earnest
expectation of the creature waiteth
for the manifestation of the sons of
God. Romans 8:19
Read: 2 Kings 6:1-7
1 And the sons of the prophets said
unto Elisha, Behold now, the place
where we dwell with thee is too
strait for us.
2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto
Jordan, and take thence every man a
beam, and let us make us a place
there, where we may dwell. And he
answered, Go ye.
3 And one said, Be content, I pray
thee, and go with thy servants. And
he answered, I will go.
4 So he went with them. And when
they came to Jordan, they cut down
wood.
5 But as one was felling a beam, the
axe head fell into the water: and he
cried, and said, Alas, master! for it
was borrowed.
6 And the man of God said, Where
fell it? And he shewed him the place.
And he cut down a stick, and cast it
in thither; and the iron did swim.
7 Therefore said he, Take it up to
thee. And he put out his hand, and
took it.
Message
The word supernatural is a
combination of two words –
superior and natural. The
supernatural is something superior
to the natural, which can compel the
natural to obey it. The supernatural
can cause things to happen contrary
to the laws of nature. While the
natural sees dry bones as dead and
dry, the supernatural on the other
hand can make dry bones to live and
reverse the irreversible. It is my
prayer for you that from today, the
supernatural by the Holy Spirit will
prevail over every situation you find
yourself. In 2 Kings 6:1-7, when the
borrowed axe head fell into the
river, the man of God took a piece of
wood and threw it into the river. On
contact with the anointing on the
man of God, the wood sank and
what was meant to be at the
bottom of the river came to the
surface and began to float. In the
name of Jesus, all impossibility in
your life will contact the power of
God and they will become
possibilities.
Why does the church need the
supernatural? It is needful because
the average human being loves
something supernatural, which can
either be from God or Satan. We
know that we are more than just
flesh and blood. Every man or
woman comprises spirit, soul and
body and the spirit inside everyone
longs for the supernatural.
Unfortunately, those who are yet to
know Jesus Christ as Lord and
Saviour end up falling into Satan’s
net by joining the occult and
practicing witchcraft. Some do so for
prosperity, security, healing, good
luck, etc. However, they do not know
that, they have consequently given
the devil a foothold over their lives.
Spiritual forces control the physical
and this is why people want to be
players in the realm of the
supernatural. Know this: the divine
supernatural far supersedes the
negative satanic supernatural. In
your life, do you see the operations
of the supernatural? Is it positive or
negative? Your quest should be to
have the positive supernatural and
not the negative one which can put
you in bondage and turn you into
Satan’s football.
KEY POINT:
The world is waiting for your
manifestation according to Rom.
8:19. When will you manifest God’s
power and glory?
