“When They See You Coming”

Thought for Today: When They See You Coming

God has spoken a truth in your spirit about His plans for you. And there is great anticipation in your spirit about what God has told you. In your excitement about what God is going to do in your life you told a few people. Some of the people that you told looked at you as if you cursed them out or as if you took something that belonged to them.  

I don’t know who I am talking to, but you can’t reveal everything that God tells or shows you, because the truth of the matter is, there will be those who hate the fact that God gave you a dream or a vision. I know it sounds crazy but because you spent time in worship, time in prayer, time in the word, and the Father opened up to you, there will be some who hate that God gave you a word for your life. 

And here is the sadder truth, it will not be a stranger who will have these ill feelings towards you because of your vision, dream, or word from God.

This is nothing new, the word of God says in Genesis 37:8, “And his (Joseph) brethren said to him (Joseph after he told them his dream) shall thou indeed reign over us? Or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams and for his words.”  

Listen to me, you are about to step into the things that God has planned for you. The word of God says, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, THOUGHTS OF PEACE, AND NOT OF EVIL, TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END. Then shall ye call upon me, and you shall go and pray unto me and I will hearken (listen to you) And ye shall seek me and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13). 

And WHEN THEY (the world, your flesh, and the devil) SEE YOU COMING they will be set out to destroy you simply because of the word, the vision, or the dream that the Father has placed in your spirit.  

I want to encourage you to keep walking (keep living in the anticipation of what God has told or showed you), and you don’t have to worry about the enemy destroying you.  

“But Pastor Erick, they are treating me badly, they are talking about me, they are ridiculing and mocking me, they are excluding me, and they don’t want me around.”  

And the Holy Spirit of God says to you today, “they should have destroyed you before I gave you the word, they should have destroyed you before I gave you the vision. Yes, they will try to hurt your feelings WHEN THEY SEE YOU COMING into alignment with the vision, they will be angry and upset WHEN THEY SEE YOU COMING into alignment with my will in and for your life. And yes, they will even try to destroy you WHEN THEY SEE YOU COMING into the dreams and visions that I have given you.” 

Just like Joseph, the word and the vision will come to pass and there ain’t nothing they can do about it. For it is written, “And when they saw him afar off, even before he came neat unto them, they conspired against him to slay him. and they said one to another behold this dreamer cometh” (Genesis 37:17-18). 

Some things you must keep to yourself and let God reveal His purpose and plans for your life, and the world around you will know that it was nobody but God who did those things in your life WHEN THEY SEE YOU COMING.

Be Blessed
