History tells us that as Napoleon was reviewing his troops one day, his horse began to rear. A young private stepped forward took the horse by the bit and quieted it down.
Napoleon said, “Thank you, captain,” (thus promoting him to captain immediately).
The young soldier asked, “Captain of what, sir?”
Napoleon replied, “Captain of my personal guard.”
So, the unexperienced private moved into the rank of captain. All the other officers despised him because they had worked hard earning their rank, but this young man had just received it without cost.
Napoleon noticed what was going on, so when he next called for a review of his army in full regalia, he rode side by side to the parade grounds with this young captain. The other officersrealized he was a favorite of Napoleon’s and they began to try to get on his good side.
The people of this world may not know it, but the time is coming when they are going to find out that we born-again, Spirit-filled, tongue-talking, divine healing-believing folks are favorites of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and they will wish they had courted our favor.
“I will honor him,” God said. (El Shaddai, Hagin, Kenneth P. 24)
“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. (Psalms 91:14 NKJV)
