One day as I was doing my daily runs in the park, a rat ran across me. It was as big as the size of my feet!

Normally I would have run away in the opposite direction, but the Lord began to reveal something to me. I happened to see that a ray of light falling on the rat was causing a big shadow on the wall behind it. Now the shadow of the rat was so big, almost like the size
of an elephant!


That’s when I heard the Lord say, “This is how the devil works. He is actually the size of a rat, but magnifies your problem or himself as the big shadow you see on the wall. What you see is just a shadow, your actual problem is the size of the rat!”

When our problems become a shadow…

Whatever problem you may be facing – maybe in your school, college, job, marriage, family, that problem may seem to be standing like a giant in your way right now. But when we realise that we are seated in the Lord Jesus at the right hand of the Father, our
perspective changes (Ephesians 2:6). Now the same problem will look small compared to the size of God in us.

Whatever you think is great obstacle or a problem or glittery are just shadows. As David would say, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).

Here’s the key…

We got to pursue Jesus long enough till everything else becomes a shadow.

Many people pursue God for blessings. But imagine you are in a relationship and someone pursues you for what you can only give, but not for who you are.


Having Lord Jesus in your life is like having everything! He is all you need! He is your God, your Father, your King, your best Friend, your Savior, your Protector, your shield, your provider, your healer… and I can go on!

May our eyes be opened

Listen girls, people, pastors or leaders cannot pursue God for you. This is where you need to get up and hear God for yourself, open the Bible and know Him more personally.

This is your life’s homework!

You need to see God for who He is really. See Him with eyes not limited to a man, but with eyes that can be only opened by the Holy Spirit. He is the Great I Am. He is the One who went before you and suffered on the cross and is now seated at God’s right hand having all power and authority.

And guess what, He has given that authority to you, His precious daughter!

I am praying for you that your eyes will be so fixed on Jesus that everything else will become a shadow in the light of Him. I am praying that God will give you solutions and promises in His Word for your problem today as you open your Bible. I pray a mighty blessing on you girl! You are born to soar!
