So I was in my room, I didn’t mean to eavesdrop on my dad’s conversation, it just happened that I heard what he was saying, you will have to trust me on this one. Okay! What I heard him say triggered something in me, I know I have always heard this statement, but I just found out that the statement is not right neither is it true.
If I tell you what He said, it means we are both guilty of the crime of eavesdropping. I don’t know what the other person said to him. All I know is that he said “you are on your own”. Some people have abbreviated it to O.Y.O (on your own). As of yesterday, I now completely disagree with this statement. I am not on my own, “I am so taking it personal!”
In any battle you face in life or any circumstance you face in life, remember He that is for you, He that is in you, He that is with you. It is this same consciousness of God, that helped David win His battle against Goliath.
Then David said to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword,
And with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee
in the name of the LORD Of hosts, the God of the
armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied (1Samuel 17: 45)
The outcome of the battle as we all know, David killed Goliath (this was like our anthem in children church). David knew that God was with Him, and the battle was of the Lord (1Sam 17: 47), surely if the Lord is in a battle, it’s so certain that He would win.
Perhaps you happen to be sent on an official assignment by the President, you would be able to enter anywhere the President can enter, because you know you have the backing of the President. It was a phone call that brought this to my consciousness that I am not alone. Greater is He that is in me (1John 4: 4). With this few words of mine I hope I have been able to convince you and not to confuse you that you are not ON YOUR OWN!
What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us,
who [can be] against us? (Romans 8: 31)
Meditate on this scripture and know that you are not “on your own” in whatever it seems that you are going through. No Goliath can stand against you, when God is for you!
Please leave your comments and suggestions and I will surely act on them. Part 2 of little beginnings would be posted tomorrow.
