Be it known to you this day whenever Yahweh is breaking through on every side that you maintain your threshing floor. Never get caught up in the detail of attempting to number what or how God is winning the victory. For He far exceeds your expectation of Him. Be always alert! Let us read what happened to the children of Israel when King David numbered the people in the book of 1 Chronicles chapter twenty- one beginning from, the verse (1) “And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. (2) “And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people. Go, to the rulers of the people. Go number Israel from Beersheba even Dan, and bring the number of them to me, that I may know it.” (3) “And Joab answered, The LORD make his people a hundred times so much more as they are: but my Lord the King, are they not at all my Lord’s servants? Why then doth my lord require this thing? Why will he be a trespass to Israel? It is a dangerous thing not to listen to wise counselors whom God has placed in your life. Let us read about how King David’s word prevailed over Joab’s wise counsel given to King David. Verse (4) “Nevertheless the King’s word prevailed against Joab. Wherefore Joab departed, and went throughout all Israel, and came to Jerusalem.” (5) “And Joab gave the sum of the number of people unto David. And all they of Israel were a thousand and a hundred thousand men that drew sword: and Judah was for hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew the sword, and Judah was for hundred thousand men that drew a sword. (6) “But Levi and Benjamin counted he not among them: For the Kind’s word was abominable to Joab.” This thing that King David had done had angered God and it caused the entire nation to
Suffer, many died too. (7) “And God was displeased with this thing: therefore, He smote Israel.” Take careful note, God spoke to David’s seer whose name was Gad. Verse (9) “And the LORD spake unto Gad, David’s seer, saying,” (10) “Go and tell David, saying, thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.” (11) “So, Gad came to David, and said unto him, thus saith the LORD, choose thee (12) “Either three years famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coast of Israel. Now, therefore, advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.” Pause for a moment to inhale, now exhale as you read of David’s reply to his seer from the verse (13) “And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.” (14) “So, the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.”
Where you are on your journey you may be experiencing a bountiful harvest, you may have become extremely popular and busy in your ministry. On the other hand, there are some people who quietly go about doing mighty exploits for the LORD, but I hear loudly, where is your threshing floor? Kindly bear with me as you read verse (15) “And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and He repented Him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, it is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. What happened next is incredible. Verse (16) “And David lifted up his eyes and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces. The anger of the LORD was still kindled against King David. Verse (17) “And David said unto God, is it not I that commanded the people to be numbered? Even I it is that have sinned and done evil indeed, but as for these sheep, what have they done? Let thine hand, I pray thee, O LORD my God, be on me, and on my father’s house but not on thy people, that they should be plagued. I hear it again, where is your threshing floor?
No matter how busy you may have become do not allow yourself to become absent from your threshing floor. Take careful note of where the LORD stopped the angel of the LORD to stop killing. It was at Ornan the Jebusite threshing floor. Read now what David seer’s message of instructions from the LORD in response to His repentant plea from the verse (18) “Then the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up, and set up an altar unto the LORD in the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite. Obedience is key to your breakthrough on the threshing floor, but where is your threshing floor? Verse (19) “And David went up at the saying of Gad, which he spake in the name of the LORD.”
It was early in the morning when Abba, Father gave me this word from Chronicles chapter twenty-one and He asked me this question, where is your threshing floor? I was away from home, but in the room that I was in it became my threshing floor! Listen, you will not only experience breakthroughs, but the supernatural power of Yahweh will envelop you but where is your threshing floor?
