ANY QUERY FROM SATAN? details logo Open Heavens - Monday, December 2, 2013
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

A divine midwife must be in control of his or her choices and ensure that they are God-centred and not self-centred. They must be ready to take decisions even when it hurts them. They must also be prepared to respond to Satan’s queries.

“And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?”
Exodus 1:18

When the plot to murder the Hebrew male babies failed, the king summoned the midwives and issued them a query. In other words, he was asking them: ‘Whose side are you on? Mine or theirs?’ Do you know that Satan is not bothered about querying many believers? Why? It’s because he cannot see any difference between their past and present lifestyles. If you still dress indecently, exaggerate events, think the same way and go to the same places you used to go before you were born-again, there will be nothing to query about you. The kingdom of darkness reacts to change and not stagnancy. If you have not practiced your Christian faith to a point where the devil or his agent will question you that: ‘Who is that your God?’ then you are not making an impact yet.

The three Hebrew children stood for their faith in God without being disrespectful to the King. They refused to bow to his golden image because they feared God. This caused them to be noticed as it appeared they were on one side, while the rest of the people were on another. God is usually interested when He finds one or more of His children ready to face Satan’s query or persecution. Usually, based on His plan and purpose, He would decide on what to do in each of such situations. In the case of the three Hebrew children, He physically came down to let the crowd realize that there is a God in Heaven that is above man and gods who can do all things. He manifested Himself to also show that He can void the worst of man’s anger, punishment or fury. If you can stand for Him, He will lift you up in the midst of opposing circumstances and at the end He would have introduced Himself.

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
1 Peter 3:15
Daniel 3: 14-30

Bible in one year:
2 Chronicles 17-19

Action point:
Thank God for past Holy Ghost congresses. Pray that this year’s congress will have something great for every participant.

In the School of Disciples of the ministry I oversee, one of the three principal Modules is: "Know Your Enemy". It is very necessary that you identify who your enemies are.
