There are 2 kingdoms in this world, the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light. The kingdom of light is way superior to that of darkness and even darkness recognizes it. Unfortunately, a larger percentage of people partner with the dark side because they don’t want to waste time and want to see results immediately.
It is true the things of God take a process. To partner with God requires patience. You may not see the results immediately but you cannot dispute the authenticity. When you are planted in God and deeply rooted, it is very difficult to be uprooted when the storms of life come.
Differences between partnering with God and partnership with the enemy
Let’s start with the price you pay in partnership
God is not a make-quick God. His desire is that we give Him the first place in our lives. In essence, God should come first before relationships, money, fame, etc.
The enemy on the other hand requires something very precious from you. In most cases, it’s one’s spouse, child, sibling, best friend, and one’s life (i.e you are only expected to live for so and so number of years). Sometimes one may know the price to be paid before entering the partnership. Other times it’s only when one has entered that one begins to realize what they’ve gotten themselves into.
When God tells us to give Him the first place in our lives, it’s 100% for our benefit. He has nothing to lose, He will always be God. He loves man so much and the only way to benefit maximally from God is to make Him your number 1. In other posts, I’ll share the benefit of this.
The devil doesn’t just have everything to lose, He already lost the war against the Almighty God.
The enemy knows he’s been condemned for life. Rather than waiting for when the process will be finalized, he is looking for ways to drag as many people as possible with him. It is therefore risky to trust such a person.
When God gives gifts, it comes with peace and it lasts for a very long time (Ecclesiastes 3: 14). It also goes from generation to generation.
When the enemy gives gifts, it doesn’t last (because it is stolen). It ends up becoming useless, with no peace of mind. I have seen people kill for positions and partner with the enemy only to enjoy the dreadful karma that comes with it.
It is very important to know that the devil DOES NOT LIKE ANY MAN. The fact that we are created in the image and likeness of God has made us candidates of hatred for the devil.
There are some people who get deceived by the way the enemy portrays himself to them e.g strong, fatherly, protective, etc. Unfortunately, most will not know the truth until they land in hell, a place of no return. The devil has nothing to offer because he himself is in trouble.
What about my Heavenly Father, King of Glory, Abba?
God is our Father. He is the creator of the universe, He created man in His very image and likeness. Everyman (whether good or bad) benefits from His generous gift. I.e the gift of life, sunshine, rain, etc. Matthew 5:45 says; “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust”.
God has made so much provision for man to live an exciting life on earth and has made it easily accessible to man through Jesus with the help of the Holy Spirit.
It’s true that there will be good times and bad times but even in those bad times do you know it is very possible to be carried by God and not feel the effect as others would?
When Jesus gave us peace and told us that we are overcomers because He has overcome the world, this statement wasn’t a joke.
Many people are not seeing the reality of this truth. This is because they are looking in the wrong place. God will not run after us with the provisions He has made for us, no. It is our responsibility to go in search of these provisions. Whether it be peace, joy, prosperity, spiritual sensitivity, etc. All of which can be seen in the Word of God and with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Choose to partner with God.
May God Bless us all.
