God is the sovereign ruler of the universe. He does not invite you to set magnificent goals and then pray that He will help you achieve them.
He already has His own agenda when He approaches you. His desire is to get you from where you are to where He is working.
He leads you from being self-centered to God-centered. When God reveals to you where He is working that become His invitation to join him in His activity.
When God reveals His work to you that becomes the time to respond.
If you are experiencing Jezebel's effects on your life recognize it and see it as a divine invitation for you to join God in the place that He is moving.
The good news is that lasting deliverance, freedom, and victory are available through Christ!
1. Do not become isolated.
When Jezebel vowed to get even with Elijah and have him killed, Elijah ran for his life and isolated himself (I Kings 19:2-4).
We all need time to relax and draw apart and seek God, but don’t let your secret place become your hiding place. There is work to be done.
2. Do not give in to discouragement and depression.
Elijah got so discouraged because of Jezebel’s threats that he prayed he might die (I Kings 19:4). He felt like no one was standing with him.
3. Refuse self-pity.
When we read the description of Elijah telling the Lord how he was the only faithful one left and Jezebel was trying to kill him, too, we detect a note of self-pity in his words (I Kings 19).
Self-pity takes us out of the battle and out of our place of victory. It isolates us and puts us in a perfect spot for Jezebel to attack on another level. Therefore, speak God’s promises out loud to yourself and stand in faith on them. Praise and thank God and declare God’s Word over yourself.
These are a few of the things you can do to keep yourself free from the effects of Jezebel.
