Unchangeable God, Reliable God, Dependable God, Faithful is Your Name. We worship You, we bless Your Holy Name. Be Thou glorified, Your Goodness is for ever more.
Who can battle with the Lord? The battle is mine says the Lord. Heaven and earth will pass away but not one of His Word will drop to the ground. He giveth seed to the sower and bread to the eater.
Beloved, until we come to the full realization that the earth of the Lord and it fullness thereof. You and I will continue to struggle. It good enough that you plant seed but God giveth increase.
Jesus is the vine and you and I are the branches, if you are cut off from the branches, where cometh your growth? We are called to believe what so ever the Word says concerning us and constantly reminding God about it.
Beloved, concerning that negative verdict or report from the doctor, your place of work, your business, career, family, ministry, the Hand of the Lord is causing a change to your favour. A reversal that will favour you is taking place right now in Jesus Name.
I don’t know whom am speaking to but what I know is that a change is coming your way now in Jesus Name. You don’t have to look like it but as am looking at you, I see God making you a wonder. I see the glory of God all over you. Praise the Lord!
Someone faith is not big enough to accept this declaration. You have written yourself off. You have belittled your God. You have refused to open wide your mouth so that God can fill it (Ps 81:10).
You must agree with God concerning a matter and it is establish. Yesterday, we wrote on God granting the desires of the righteous. But on a condition that your prayers, requests and demands must be pure and holy.
If Christ will raise Lazarus from the dead after four days, what is your situation that the quickening Power that raised Christ from death cannot handle. Beloved, the goodnews is that you need not just faith but unstaggering trustfulness that God will do it for you whatsoever it may be up to the eleventh hour.
Come let us again look into the message we have for better understanding:
“He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.” Ps. 112:7
Suspense is dreadful. When we have no news from home, we are apt to grow anxious, and we cannot be persuaded that “no news is good news.” Faith is the cure for this condition of sadness: the Lord by His Spirit settles the mind in holy serenity, and all fear is gone as to the future as well as the present.
The fixedness of heart spoken of by the Psalmist is to be diligently sought after. It is not believing this or that promise of the Lord, but the general condition of unstaggering trustfulness in our God, the confidence which we have in Him that He will neither do us ill Himself, nor suffer anyone else to harm us. This constant confidence meets the unknown as well as the known of life.
Let the morrow be what it may, our God is the God of tomorrow. Whatever events may have happened, which to us are unknown, our Jehovah is God of the unknown as well as of the known. We are determined to trust the Lord, come what may. If the very worst should happen, our God is still the greatest and best. Therefore will we not fear though the postman’s knock should startle us, or a telegram wake us at midnight. The Lord liveth, and what can His children fear?
Beloved, do you know that fear is a spirit? But God has not given us a Spirit of fear but of boldness. Until you deal with that spirit, you will be jittering concerning what the future holds for you. It was words that goliath used to instil fear in the Israelite armies (1 Sam 17:10; 16; 24-26). Saul wanted to put on the spirit of fear upon David but he quickly rejected it (vs. 33-37). David also used Word to slain Goliath before he slang a stone into his forehead (vs. 45-49). Finally, David overcame him. (In vs. 50-5; Rev 21:7). Praise the Lord!
Begin to declare your liberty via Word. Remind God about His faithfulness and His promises, claim of it and don’t allow the devil to take you captive again. Never again my beloved (1 Cor 2:10-16; 2 Cor 10:4-5).
For Jehovah is my Strength and my song;…, we will never be left to perish (Isa 12:2b):
“For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” Ps. 16:10
This word has its proper fulfillment in the Lord Jesus; but it applies also, with a variation, to all who are in Him. Our soul shall not be left in the separate state, and our body, though it see corruption, shall rise again. The general meaning, rather than the specific application, is that to which we would call our readers’ thoughts at this particular time.
We may descend in spirit very low till we seem to be plunged in the abyss of hell; but we shall not be left there. We may appear to be at death’s door in heart, and soul, and consciousness; but we cannot remain there. Our inward death as to joy and hope may proceed very far; but it cannot run on to its full consequences, so as to reach the utter corruption of black despair.
We may go very low, but not lower than the Lord permits; we may stay in the lowest dungeon of doubt for a while, but we shall not perish there. The star of hope is still in the sky when the night is blackest. The Lord will not forget us and hand us over to the enemy.
Let us rest in hope. We have to deal with One whose mercy endureth for ever. Surely, out of death, and darkness, and despair we shall yet arise to life, light, and liberty (1 Cor 15:57).
Do I have an “Overcomer” in the house today? This is what the Sovereign Lord is saying, you will not be left to perish; only trust in Him.
Beloved look at “great faith”, in Mk 6:54 on recognizing Jesus, read the vs 55-56 and do likewise.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
