SCRIPTURE READING: MATTHEW 5: 14-16
FOCUS: “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.” (Matthew 5: 15)
MEMORY VERSE: “I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 14)
In our Focal Scripture, Jesus speaks of the candle which is placed on a candlestick. The platform for the candle is the candlestick. The candle light was described as having a platform, made with hands. Notice that the light of the world, literally, speaks of the sun, moon and stars, which were hoisted in the firmament of heaven by God Himself. Whilst some lights have a man-made platform, the light of the world has a God-made platform.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2023 and beyond, may it be said that your platform is God Himself. May God hoist you in heights where no man can bring you down from. May you enjoy God-made platforms. May you enjoy platforms that cannot be dismantled by men. May you enjoy a divine advantage. May you enjoy heights that God Himself carried you to. May you enjoy a rising that only God can explain. May God take you to great heights.
When God makes a platform for you, you will not struggle to gain results. When God makes a platform for you, there may be opposition but you will be more than a conqueror. When God makes a platform for you, what brings others down will not be able to bring you down. When God creates a platform for you, men will be unable to explain your rising. When God creates a platform for you, favour will speak louder than your labour
You may have struggled to create platforms for yourself in time past; men may have made efforts to create platforms for you in time past; but get ready, you are about to operate on levels that God will position you to operate in. You are about to enjoy heights that your own efforts would not have taken you to. You are about to break into levels that will defy the protocols of men. You are about to become the latest wonder.
Welcome to your new season where heaven-made levels will be your portion. Welcome to that season where you will operate on levels that heaven created for you. Welcome to that season where the help of God is your advantage.
