There is a great harvest coming to many believers in Christ, out of all of the confusion going on now in the world with the coronavirus. The wealth of the ungodly is apparently being laid up for those, who are righteously walking before the Lord (Proverbs 13:22). 

But the believers in Christ must be prepared to use their faith, to fight and stand strong against the enemy. Otherwise what is rightfully theirs can slip away from them. The enemy is doing everything that he can do to prevent, the children of God from laying hold on what is theirs.

Being able to lay hold on what is yours requires of you first of all, your ability as a child of God to recognize who you are in Christ Jesus. Secondly, it demands that you use your authority as a believer in Christ, to stand up strongly against every wiles and tactics of the enemy. You are thirdly also required to stay focused and not be distracted, by the deceitfulness from the world around you. 

Make no mistake about it that the higher you are going in God’s perfect will, the fiercer will be the opposition that you’ll have to face from the devil. And he is skillfully watching every step that you’re taking, towards your goal in the high calling with Christ Jesus. His plan is to stop or hinder you from getting your goal accomplished. 

Abraham and Isaac did it. So can you also

You can change your destiny in life, if you’re in Covenant with God

Abraham as our example became rich, as the famine in Canaan forced him to relocate temporarily to Egypt. The famine created a shifting, that caused him to temporarily relocate to Egypt, so as to take possession of what was already laid up for him there.

 God had the Covenant of blessing with Abraham on His mind, as Abraham was moving to Egypt. He started bringing His promises to Abraham to come to pass. God’s Covenant partner was repositioned, away from the area that was experiencing the famine. The Lord had the plan to turn the famine around into a blessing for Abraham. 

On getting to Egypt he encountered a problem, because Sarah (his wife) was too beautiful for the Egyptians to ignore. The princes of Pharaoh wanted to take her away from him. They wanted to get Sarah for Pharaoh as wife.

But the Lord had to intervene on behalf of Abraham (His Friend). The Egyptians ended up paying a high price for this. They found out the truth in a hard way. They’d been caught trying to outwit the Covenant Partner of God Almighty. 

This is one huge advantage of being in Covenant relationships, because those who oppose or attack you, will automatically become the enemies of the person, that you are in a Covenant relationship with. God as Abraham’s Covenant partner had to stand up, to defend and protect His Covenant with Abraham. Abraham was promised a child in accordance with the Covenant. Sarah was meant to deliver a child for Abraham, through whom the whole world would be blessed. The Lord had to enforce His Covenant promise to Abraham. And He decided to use the weapon of the Egyptians against Abraham, as the stepping stone to start bringing His promises of prosperity to pass for him.

As the Bible says concerning God’s defense of Abraham and Sarah:

“But the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭12:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Can you imagine the Lord afflicting the whole government of Egypt at the time, with a plague like the coronavirus, because they dared to lay their hands on the wife of the righteous man – Abraham. We can see here how God fights on behalf of those, who are steadfast walking in faith before Him. Abraham was steadfastly walking in his Covenant relationship with God. So it was the righteous thing that all the hosts of Heaven, had to stand up to protect Abraham and his wife – Sarah from harm.

The everlasting Covenant by the blood of Jesus Christ, is not different for us as the people of God today. God will protect you from the coronavirus, as long as you are walking faithfully before Him in that Covenant (Exodus 15:26). 

The Egyptians quickly figured out that they had been wrong. They discovered that they had targeted the wrong person. They suffered a lot due to the plague. But they repented immediately, and did the right thing by blessing Abraham with all kinds of riches, as they released his wife back to him. And when eventually Abraham left Egypt, he came out of the country heavily loaded. 

The Bible says:

“Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South. Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭13:1-2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Isn’t it amazing how the blessing of the man who is in Covenant with God, can rub in on those who are connected or related with him. Lot became rich also, because of Abraham. In the same manner don’t be surprised to see, those who are connected with you in the ministry or the calling of God over your life, becoming prosperous as you begin to come out of the devastation caused by the coronavirus. 

It was during the time of the famine in Canaan, that the plague came upon the Egyptians. But God turned the situation of the time around to bless Abraham and everyone with him. He became so rich that by the time he returned back to Canaan, he became the envy of the whole nation. The people were surprised to see this stranger prospering among them during a famine. 

God started lifting Abraham up while the inhabitants of Canaan were suffering and struggling with the famine. The same God who lifted Abraham up during the famine and the plague, is about to lift you up also into your prosperous place. 

The same thing happened to Isaac, his son. The Philistines also tried to take his wife (Rebekah) away from him, during the time of a famine. God had directed him not to do as Abraham (his father) did, by going to Egypt. Isaac was directed to continue living in the land of the Philistines.

God wanted to show Isaac here that, He is never limited by situations or circumstances. He wanted to show him that He will always bless, those who are clinging to Him and following after Him; no matter where they are in their walk with Him. Be it in Egypt or in Canaan, God will bless you wherever He has placed you to be fruitful, increase and multiply. He is able to make you the envy of the world around you.

The geographical location, economic or political structure of your country, is not a hindrance for Him to bless and prosper you. He is able to turn everything around into your favor. But He will do this for you, so that you can be able to help and teach others to follow Him also.

Even during the famine in the land of the Philistines, Isaac’s testimony was different. And your story is different also, because your life as a child of God is not meant, to follow that of the world around you. You are operating under Heaven’s economy, even though you are living in the world. God is your source and eternal reward, and not the world. That’s why your case is different.

The key here for Isaac was his willingness to listen to God’s voice and obey Him. The Bible says that as Isaac obeyed the Lord:

“Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭26:12-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“The man began to prosper” in the middle of the famine. Others were counting their losses, while Isaac was counting his blessing during this famine. The Philistines were consumed with the devastation caused by the famine to their land. They could not understand why or how, they could be sowing as Isaac did.

But Isaac considered God’s word to him alone. He acted on the word of God and prospered with it. There was a supernatural transfer of wealth and prosperity into the hands of Isaac. God prospered him to the envy of the people of the nation, in whose land he was living. 

The Philistinians eventually recognized the hand of the Lord upon Isaac, and decided to enter into a peace covenant of salt with him. This was an unbreakable covenant between the nation of the Philistines and the righteous man – Isaac. The Philistinian leadership came to Isaac and said:

“ .. We have certainly seen that the LORD is with you. So we said, ‘Let there now be an oath between us, between you and us; and let us make a covenant with you, that you will do us no harm, since we have not touched you, and since we have done nothing to you but good and have sent you away in peace. You are now the blessed of the LORD.’ ”

‭‭Genesis‬ ‭26:28-29‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

As the coronavirus pandemic is winding up, the repositioning and the transfer of wealth is coming to your direction. There may be a famine or a plague around you right now, but God’s plan for your life is unchangeable. People may be dying around you, but God’s Covenant with you includes good health and prosperity (3 John 1:2-3). God also has the end time harvest on his mind for you. Get yourself ready to get into it.

Your blessing will come as a scent of water 

The scent of water brings healing and prosperity

There is so much to do for the Lord as all these are coming to an end. You have no time for idle gossips or riddles around you. The coronavirus has been used by the devil, to bring devastation to God’s creation on the earth. You now have so much to do for the Lord, in turning it around into a blessing. Your best days are just ahead of you. 

As Job once declared during his trial:

“Even a tree has more hope! If it is cut down, it will sprout again and grow new branches. Though its roots have grown old in the earth and its stump decays, at the scent of water it will bud and sprout again like a new seedling.”

‭‭Job‬ ‭14:7-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

There are new things that are about to start budding and sprouting up again, like new seedlings from the coronavirus devastation. At the slightest “scent of water”, these new things will begin to spring up. Water here is a personification of the Holy Spirit. As Jesus said:

“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.”

‭‭John‬ ‭7:38-39‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“The scent of water” into your life from the Holy Spirit will give birth to new things. Just one word from the Lord will change your life, and the course of your ministry and the Church. You are not going to be the same again. 

But you must be prepared to fight the good fight of faith, because the devil will bring up many things, against the revelation that you are receiving from the Lord. He is going to be furious to see you prospering, out of what he had designed to bring you destruction.

So get yourself ready. It’s never going to be business as usual anymore. If you had never been so mad at the devil before, what he has done with the coronavirus around you, should be triggering you up more than ever before against him. 

You have no time for any of the silly and idle things of the past. What the devil has destroyed with the coronavirus, should be gearing you up to take the battle out of the four corners of your church against him. His plan is to silence your voice to the world. But the devil is a liar. 

There are great things waiting for you. It may look like your situation is not different from, that of a tree that has been cut off right now; but it’s about to change. You may had been hindered awhile, from walking in the will of God to you on the earth by the devil for awhile. But on the contrary your strength has been renewed now. 

At the slightest scent of the water through the washing of God’s word to you (Ephesians 5:26), new things are coming your way. You will start receiving new ideas and revelations into what God has waiting for you. New ideas and revelations demands that you act upon them. You will be energized to go out and pursue what the Lord is telling you to do. And the favor of God will go ahead of you to bring you His prosperity with those ideas. 

You had been called into the Kingdom for such a time like this. God is moving stuffs around for your favor, so that you can be able to harvest more souls into His Kingdom with minimal sweat. So get up and stand firmly in the position where the Lord has placed you to be. It’s from that very location that He will begin to prosper you, as you remain focused and faithful to Him. Don’t stand in your own ability, but rather stand in God’s strength. It’s only in the strength of the Lord, that you will be able to do great exploits. 

So therefore be strong in His word, so that your prayer life can become much more effective. Gird your loins and belt with the strength of the Lord. Even though the devil will come out against you, as he came out against Abraham and Isaac. But your victory is surely guaranteed. You are victorious already in Christ Jesus. The devil had been defeated. So get ready to stand strong in the victory that Christ had given to you.
