Song

O yes! He answers prayer, x2

The Lord I serve, answers prayer,

Only Jesus answers prayer,

Alleluia!

Serving a living God, yes am serving a living God Amen!. Indeed our God is a living God, we need not be afraid, heaven and earth might pass away, but He remaineth the same. He so Faithfull; He never change, He never fail. We bow with the twenty- four elders in heaven and we say Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord.

We are rejoicing in the Lord, victory won over satan and his cohorts. Standing on the promises of God, in seven ways they will flee. We come boldly to the Throne and we say thank You for saving us, thank You Lord for loving us.

Sometimes, there are events that happens around us and as human we are afraid, we are left with questionings that might have no end. As a child of God in God’s will, you know that nothing happens in your life without God’s knowledge and permission.

You are torn in between getting angry with yourself or everybody around you or even everything as well. Then come the strategic planner and executor, shouting and making you more confuse of the whole matter. You are torn in between bitterness and sometimes at the verge of ending it all.

As a child of God, the Almighty One, the King of kings, the One who owns the earth and all that is in it is your Father, what are you excepted to do? At such a time, you discover that your mind strays away even in the place of prayer, trying to figure out solution instead of allowing the solution provider to profile one for you.

However, you can try out the following my beloved:

Sing praises- Though praises might not flow very easily but I will still say you continue to praise God, in midst of that praise, crying might come, never mind even your tears He put in the bottle, none drops on the floor. O my God, He listen to every sounds you make and will profile answers to you sooner than you imagine.

Secondly, begin to pray in spirit. Though words might not come very easily, pray in the Spirit. Do not allow the devil to deny you the opportunity to sort yourself out before God. Don’t be too emotional or you will get no result. You will stay too long than is necessary at same spot.

As you are gaining strength with the help of the Holy Spirit begin to recollect the miracle of the past. Recollect also the testimonies either shared by you or another. If God has ever done it for someone He will always do it again. So gain confident by the miracles of the past.

Now more light is coming to you, you are a bit stable now, probably you have left the place of prayer but you must not leave the presence of God or else you will be a gonna. Stay in God’s presence and continue to remind Him as He commanded you, to keep reminding Him of His words and covenants.

Finally, the Spirit of God will begin to remind you the Word of God, and as you search through the scripture, so will your light come. The Word that will liberate you will come and you will begin to reason together with God rather than crying profusely. Praise the Lord! Some body.

Now you are thinking out solution with the help of the Holy Spirit. Like the prodigal son, after he had lost everything in his wild living, began to reason out how he got to the place lack and how he will get out of it. That action “reasoning” brought him out from his predicament. He went back home knowing that his father’s hired servants have more than enough to eat while will he stay here and die.

All he did was to “arise and go to his father and confess his sin, he is not worthy to be called a son but be taken instead as one of the hired servant and that decision alone brought back dignity to his life. His father forgave him and accepted him back as a son.

Is possible that is what some of us need as a moment like this to come out our predicament. Is possible we miss the way and the “curse” instead of the “blessings” God planned for us overtook us. Then, we have to repent and get back on track.

So you need to reason your way out of where you have found yourself. Whatever it might take you, make sure you take a step that will eventually earn you victory. Do you need to arise? Please click here to give your live to Christ? It is only those that overcomes at the end will make it to heaven.

Heaven is the homecoming of overcomers, so don’t be left out.

Ensure that you are victorious by engaging effectively in those thing that will earn you victory rather than defeat:

“The Lord will cause the enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you. They will march out against you from one direction but flee from you in seven directions. . . .

The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You will march out against them from one direction but flee from them in seven directions. You will be an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.”—Deuteronomy 28:7, 25

As the Israelites were preparing to enter the Promised Land, God set before them a choice: Heed His voice, obey His commandments, and experience continued victory. Or turn from God, disobey His word, and experience repeated and resounding defeat. It was a simple choice. The choice they made would be evident by the results on the battlefield.

The assurance of victory did not mean that the Israelites would not have to strap on their armor and go to battle. It did not assure them of effortless victory. At times their enemies fought fiercely, and the battles raged back and forth. Nevertheless, as the Israelites walked closely with God, they knew that their efforts would always result in victory.

God gives us the same choice He gave the Israelites. If we walk with Him, obedient to His word, He will stand with us and ensure victory over our challenges. We must face the battle, but God promises us victory if we remain in His will. However, if we choose to disassociate from God, we surely will be overtaken by difficulties. As with the Israelites, our decision will be evident by the outcome. If you are continually being defeated by everything you face, your heart has departed from God.

If you have been experiencing defeat in the challenges you face, examine your heart. When you are buffeted by the crises of life, your heart may have shifted away from God. Choose to listen to God. Then obey what He tells you, no matter what you face, and you will experience victory.

Yes! Victory, because you are on the Lord’s side; you were never alone neither are you forsaken:

 

“Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken.” Isa. 62:4

“Forsaken” is a dreary word. It sounds like a knell. It is the record of sharpest sorrows, and the prophecy of direst ills. An abyss of misery yawns in that word “Forsaken.” Forsaken by one who pledged his honor! Forsaken by a friend so long tried and trusted! Forsaken by a dear relative! Forsaken by father and mother! Forsaken by all! This is woe indeed, and yet it may be patiently borne if the Lord will take us up.

But what must it be to feel forsaken of God? Think of that bitterest of cries, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Have we ever in any degree tasted the wormwood and the gall of “Forsaken,” in that sense? If so, let us beseech our Lord to save us from any repetition of so unspeakable a sorrow. Oh, that such darkness may never return!

Men in malice said of a saint, “God hath forsaken him; persecute and take him.” But it was always false. The Lord’s loving favor shall compel our cruel foes to eat their own words, or, at least, to hold their tongues.

The reverse of all this is that superlative word, Hephzibah — “the Lord delighteth in thee.” This turns weeping into dancing. Let those who dreamed that they were forsaken hear the Lord say, “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.”

I believe this is sure comforting word to us to know that we are not alone in that very challenge as it seems to be. Though you may have mismanage it, you’re being still and reasoning your way out of that problem with the help of the Holy Spirit is an evident that you were never alone.

Receive grace to live an overcomer’s life in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
