Not My Time
"These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come." John 8:20 NKJV
They tried several times to kill Jesus, but could not. One time, they all rose up and thrust Him out of the city; they led Him to the brow of the hill, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. But Jesus passed through the midst of them, and went His way! Wow! They just couldn't kill Him; they was an unseen force that restrained them, because His time had not come!
Listen, you are here on earth for a specific time; you are on that job for a specific time; you are in that office for a specific time; and until that time is over, there's absolutely nothing that anyone will be able to do about it. Why? Because God is behind you. In Exodus 23:25-26, God said that if we serve Him, He will bless our bread and our water. He said that He will take sickness away from our midst. He said that no one shall suffer miscarriage or be barren in our land; and He said that He will fulfill the number of our days! Hallelujah!
Do your best devil, but it's not my time! Get your footsoldiers to make several attempts, they will fail, because it's not my time! Let them gather together, let them stay up all night, let them even execute their plans; but I'm still going to be here, because it's not my time! I shall not die, my business shall not die, my career shall not die, my family shall not die, my assignment shall not die; but live, and declare the works of the Lord! Yes! Amen!
