The strategies of God are not the strategies of men. The plans of God are truly higher than the plans of men. The thoughts of God are more creative than the thoughts of men. We look at the natural and think we need strength, power, authority and money to take the land, but the Lord has another plan. When we look through the lens of the world’s way of taking land, we only see the wisdom of men. However, what looks like foolishness to men is actually the strategy of God to take the land.
Men are trying to control the earth’s population; the finances of the earth; the narrative of the nations. Men, flesh and blood, men, who are only breathing because the breath of God is in them. It is long past time that believers starting viewing world events from the vantage point of being seated with Christ in heavenly places. When you look at mere men from that vantage point, you realize no matter the name they have that invokes fear, no matter the title they carry that creates intimidation, no matter the amount of paper money they hold that seeks to be powerful, it is all an illusion in light of the substance that is God.
Killing babies for money, trafficking women and children for money and pleasure, building tunnels, controlling companies, rigging elections, all the works of men trying to outsmart the all knowing God. God’s patience with people makes them think they are getting away with something, but when patience expires and justice is on tap, there is no escaping the truth that is going to set the nations free. So, what is God’s plan…
I think we see it in Deuteronomy 1:37-39 “Moses, not even you will enter the Promised Land! Instead, your assistant, Joshua son of Nun, will lead the people into the land. Encourage him, for he will lead Israel as they take possession of it. I will give the land to your little ones—your innocent children. You were afraid they would be captured, but they will be the ones who occupy it.” New leaders and childlike people are going to take the land. Jesus did say, unless you become like a child you cannot enter the kingdom of God. The innocent are about to possess the land, it sounds foolish, but it is the strategy of God.
