I wrote my Senior School Certificate Examination in a school where failure was the norm. Most people did not want to write their exams in that school. I remember telling myself; “It does not matter what is happening around here, I would pass my exams in flying colours according to God’s word”. I had to superimpose what is written on what was happening.

Friend, you must learn how to manage what is happening in the light of what is written. What is happening is what you are going through at the moment, what is written is what God has said and concluded about your life and destiny. When what is written contradicts what is happening, you need to rise up and superimpose what is written on what is happening.

“For ever, O LORD, your word is settled in heaven” (Psalms 119:89). The word of God is settled. It is already determined, decided and concluded, irrespective of what would show up later. You need to know what has been settled as far as your life is concerned so that nothing can unsettle you. What is settled is what Christ has accomplished on the cross for you (Romans 8:37).

“For all the promises of God in him are yes, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us” (2 Corinthians 1:20). What is settled are the promises of God spoken generally in scriptures and also spoken personally to you. What is settled are the things that have to do with your prophetic destiny (Matthew 26:24, Ephesians 1:11). When you know your prophetic destiny, you would not be disturbed by what is happening (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28).

It is not enough for something to be written concerning you, you must know that it is written and you must know what is written. Jesus found out what was written concerning Him in Isaiah and He was able to reintroduce Himself to His world even in the midst of contradictions (Luke 4:17-21). The battle against the devil is not a battle of emotions, it is a battle of what has been written. What is written is your potent weapon of victory (Luke 4:4, 8).

“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Corinthians 2:11). Acquaint yourself with what has been written. Don’t be an ignorant child of God. Don’t be mesmerized by what the devil or life is throwing at you. Superimpose what is written on what is happening; in your health, marriage, finance, career, business, ministry etc (Psalms 149:9).
