Threats (wordweb): something that is a source of danger
SWOT analysis itself described Threat: elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the business/project.
As an individual, I hope by now you must have come to discover you are the business/project I have been talking about for some weeks back now?
The business/project is got threats, yes! You have got threats!!
I will like to scripturally spiri-analyse this term Threat. Here I go.............
Isaiah 54:17a No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.
Here is the link up:
Weapons will be formed against you; tongues shall rise against you- threats!You need to be aware of this: There is a Treat for every Threat!
(a) NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED(as a threat) AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER.
God permits those weapons to be formed; those threats were permitted by God so they don’t prosper for you to prosper! Do you get that at all?
They are made to fail and their failure is just your platform of success.
Do not be scared by the presence of anything/anyone grooming itself to disrupt your plans and progress.
They are made to Appear and Disappear for you to Appear and Re-appear
This is not to say an individual doing your type of business or rendering your type of service is a threat nor am I saying they wouldn’t prosper.
If you both are in your location then expect your allocations!
That man running your type of business or offering that type of service is a neighbour and not a threat.
“thou shalt condemn”..... That scripture is not talking about God but you!
You are to condemn every threat to that business/project/personality........condemn is what the scriptures said not to Judge them!
That is where a lot of us get it wrong; all we can offer is judging those elements of threat instead of condemning them. No wonder the scriptures said: Judge not that ye not be judged.
What that scripture was saying is “do not waste your time on threats so they do not waste their time on you also” instead condemn them.
Condemn their activities- condemn those elements in your life and environment that could cause trouble for you
This is not say you should speak ill of anything or anyone seen/felt as a threat but anything standing as threat to your personality/business/project needs to be condemned by you- not by God!!. God gave us brains so He can rest.
At this point, I’ll like to define Threat with the scenario of Moses, Pharaoh and his magicians! These magicians were performing every miracles Moses&Co(Aaron) Performed (You could remember when rods became snakes I guess?) but the threat to Moses was not the magicians but Pharaoh- He wouldn’t let them go serve their Lord.
Those things not making you grow, prosper and excel in your business/project/career or personality is your threat not that man in the same career/field/business with you!
Know you threat and condemn them. Remember we are not called to judge.
