Ecclesiastes 11:1-4: In the world of computer technology, The Norton Anti-Virus computer software company released and anti-virus software mechanism, which is downloaded on most computers today. The most interesting thing about this invention is it is designed to do only ONE THING: TO STOP POP-UPS! Pop-ups(for those who are unaware) are unsolicited advertisements which show up on your screen which you haven't asked for.
All the more annoying, the "POP UPS" show up more often than not, at the workplace. Pop Ups, aka "Weapons of Mass Distractions", They usually on the job than at the house. The intention of the POP-UP is to "take you off your focus and to expend your energy on something else. POP-UPS can be quite relentless if you haven't release an "ANTI- VIRUS"(Anti means to be against). They are relentless because when you cancel one, another shows up. It's interesting because that's the exact same way demonic WARFARE works. As soon as you're able to cancel one assignment against you, one lie, one issue, one dilemma, one argument..another decides to show up unannounced..er go..POP UP!
The sad part is when you cancel them, their ADVERTISEMENTS become larger & larger & larger, which now turns into a fight between you & the POP UP. So now, you have to brace yourself because at any moment, a POP UP can show up at work, at the church, at the mall, at the house, waiting for you in the parking lot, which now keeps you from being focus on your goals, your assignment, your task, because you've been forced to wage war on "something" or "someone" you do not want that's trying to get your attention.
Beloved, when people decide to POP UP into your life, who were not there when you were struggling, when you were on your last dollar(the worst is to be with someone & they still not be there with you), but now since you are rebuilding your life, rebuilding your family, rebuilding your aspirations, rebuilding your vision, now the "POP UPS" what you to come hang with them. When the "POP UPS" couldn't help or support you at ground level, celebrate yourself midway, knowing you're that close to your destiny. Use discernment to know the difference between a unwelcomed guest and a surprised visitor.
Wait with expency(expect and SEE) for a PLEASANT SURPRISE from God when He POPS UP in your finance, in your house, on your job, in your ministry, on your business. In 2013, some things were unwelcomed in your life, but in this next season, God says, "The next time you go to the door, it's going to be the prayer you' ve been praying about and it's going to POP UP into your situation. God bless you!!
