The peace of the Lord be with you all. The joy of the Lord is always our strength. May we all have a special encounter as we reflect on His word.
Let us turn our Bibles to Nehemiah 13:4-9.
And before this, Eliashib the priest, having the oversight of the chamber of the house of our God, was allied unto Tobiah:
And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.
But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem: for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king:
And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God.
And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber.
Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers: and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meat offering and the frankincense.
Nehemiah 13: 4-9
Dear friends, do not put the wrong people and things in the right places of your life. It is likely to place friends, blood relations, church members, work etc in the wrong places. If you are not careful and you place vision killers at the wrong places you will end up not achieving anything because they will destroy your efforts and abort the vision. Please place the right people at the right places of your life.
Beloved, Tobiah was a proven enemy of God’s people but because of the Priest Eliashib’s invitation and appointment to the wrong position, he worked to displace the agenda.
DO NOT PLACE THE WRONG PEOPLE AT THE RIGHT PLACES OF YOUR LIFE.
Satan is very smart. He can stop believers from. achieving great visions and great assignments for the Lord. He can stop you from been active in the things of God, serving God faithfully and he does it beautifully through compromise and distraction to further his own agenda. Have you placed someone at a wrong position that causes you to stumble in your walk with God and work for God? You need to be on guard so that it does not happen at our own invitation.
You need to deal with those things and personalities that cause you to deviate. May the Holy Spirit be your helper and guide us as we throw invitations to the right people/things into our lives in order not to shatter our destinies.
My Dear brothers and sisters, do not resist Jesus, because he is the way, the truth and the life but resist the devil who comes in to steal, kill and destroy. Throw invitations with the conviction of the Holy Spirit actively participating. May God be with us all and please enjoy the weekend. PH 310.
