For the sake of understanding, God speaks to us using similitude, making use of the known to make us know the unknown. From God’s word we were made to know that as God’s children we are to Him like an arrow in the hands of a warrior, what an arrow is in the hands of a warrior is what we are in God’s hands. In the hands of a warrior, an arrow is a weapon with which he deals with his enemy this means that as God’s children we are His weapons to deal with His enemies, this is one of the many reasons why the enemy detests the children of God because he knows they are his bane.
Knowing that the manifestation of the arrows will mark the end of his arrogance, the enemy seeks for ways of stopping the arrows from landing and if possible from being fired and one of his strategies to achieve this purpose is the WAR OF ARROWS.
Through the deception of the enemy ARROWS WAR WITH THEIR BOWS, these are the times when arrows wage war against the bows that should be their launching pad and springboard into their destiny. A LOT OF GOD’S CHILDREN ARE FINDING FAULT AND FIGHTING THE PROPHECIES, PROCESSES AND THE PERSONS THAT SHOULD PROPEL AND PUSH THEM INTO THE FULFILMENT OF PURPOSE.
As arrows in the hands of God, our Bows are PROPHECIES, PROCESSES AND PERSONS. Prophecies are Divine forces that have gone ahead of us which through our agreement are meant to propel us into prosperity but it’s quite pitiful that many are at war against their prophecy, some even go to the extent of praying against it. The death of Jesus on the cross is a prophecy that He must agree with to fulfil purpose, can you now imagine Jesus agreeing with Satan who spoke to Him through Peter that such thing as death on the cross will not happen to Him? Many in concord with the devil are having a discord with their prophecy, Help us blessed saviour.
Can you imagine a raw gold whose most hated location is to be in fire, would such ever gain enough beauty to be used for a vessel? Never. Many are they who detest with passion the process that will make them prosperous because they feel it is too painful and harsh. BELOVED, WHATEVER WILL BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU WILL BE A ‘BURDEN’ TO YOU, NOTHING EASY MAKES A MAN EXCELLENT, THE PATH TO DISTINCTION IS ‘DIS-EASY’. There are processes that we must pass through on the way to the fulfilment of our purpose, to bypass them is to end up as a passerby in destiny.
There are persons who we must walk with into fulfilment, in his wile the evil one contends against such relationship with all strength he can muster, this is the satanic strategy the wrecked Lot, the son of Abraham’s brother. His bane was his separation with Abraham; the same is the reason why angels became demons-they left God.
This is a call to call for divine help, lest by ignorance we wage war or keep waging war against our bows.
