Who Is Riding With You?

Sometimes the storm has nothing to do with you but everything with one person’s act of disobedience. Everyone saying they fear the Lord really ain’t fearing but fleeing from doing His will. Check who riding with you but yet sleeping while you fighting.

Jonah‬ ‭1:3-6; 10-12‬ ‭MSG‬‬

“But Jonah got up and went the other direction to Tarshish, running away from God. He went down to the port of Joppa and found a ship headed for Tarshish. He paid the fare and went on board, joining those going to Tarshish—as far away from God as he could get. But God sent a huge storm at sea, the waves towering. The ship was about to break into pieces. The sailors were terrified. They called out in desperation to their gods. They threw everything they were carrying overboard to lighten the ship. Meanwhile, Jonah had gone down into the hold of the ship to take a nap. He was sound asleep. The captain came to him and said, “What’s this? Sleeping! Get up! Pray to your god! Maybe your god will see we’re in trouble and rescue us.”

”What on earth have you done!” As Jonah talked, the sailors realized that he was running away from God. They said to him, “What are we going to do with you—to get rid of this storm?” By this time the sea was wild, totally out of control. Jonah said, “Throw me overboard, into the sea. Then the storm will stop. It’s all my fault. I’m the cause of the storm. Get rid of me and you’ll get rid of the storm.””

The Secret Nicodemus Spirit

God has been speaking to me about those who have a Nicodemus spirit for some time now. God spoke to me and said that you will see those in operation under this spirit name pop up or associated with the popular or those who are well known. This spirit would rather associate with those who can speak a word but have no power to lay hands and deliver.

This spirit comes to you privately because they know what you house on the inside. They meet you in your inbox, phone calls when no one is around while denying who you are in public. They will never openly support you no matter how much they come to be fed by you at night and declare how much they love you. Leaders with this spirit are afraid of losing their religious influence and laypeople are afraid of being labeled as not being loyal to them. This spirit sits quietly while you are torn down, lied on, and when given an opportunity to speak the truth will cower down with closed lips.

Nicodemus knew who Jesus was but the fear of what the religious would say or do outweighed doing the right thing. So Jesus had to die before he could show his devotion.

This should simply help you to continue on this course guarding your heart while still serving and doing the works of the Kingdom. Your reward is found in Christ and not people. Love as Christ and find your joy in him and him alone.
