Text: Matt. 28:18-20, Isa. 43:1-4
As long as we still wear this flesh we are bound to experience certain situations in the journey of our lives that will seem as if God is too far from us. It is at this point that many children of God not being mindful of His promises take up all manner of negative attitudes. Some complain at this point, some murmur, worst of all some blame God for their predicaments. Hear this, God is not responsible for your problems,
He is there to deliver you from them.
Psalm 34:19 declares "Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all".
Let's read from our text in Isaiah 43, verses one and two, "But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee."
If you notice from the above scripture, there is a progression in the dimension of the situation. From waters to rivers, from rivers to fire. At this point some brethren will be convinced that it is your sin that is responsible for the situation, those that will be bold enough will ask if you pay your tithe. No doubt, sin or disobedience can bring an adverse situation into ones life, do not make light of it.
(see Jer.2:17 ).
However not every of such situation is as a result of sin. Now, there is physical fire, and there is situational fire but the goodnews is that you cannot be consumed by fire, whether physical or situational. This is because the consuming fire who is with you will consume every threatening fire around you. Shout hallelujah!
The only thing that is required of you is: FEAR NOT period. Do not fret thyself or panic in face of any confrontation of life. The one that says He is with you can not lie. Very soon He will arise and all your enemies will be scattered.
From the scripture in Joshua 1:5, we agree with God that no problem will be able to stand before us all the days of our lives. As they come, the one that is with us deals
with them. When next you are confronted with a challange in any area of your life
rise up and declare your victory over the situation because God is with you. Praise the Lord. Behold the former things are come to pass and new things do I declare
before they spring forth I tell you of them.
God will cause every crisis in your life to cease. He will open a new chapter in your life. God will bring peace to every storm of your life. You will find grace in the sight of God. This week shall be a week of favour. I see God intervene in your case this week. He will preserve you and your family. Go forth with Joy.
In Jesus mighty name we have prophecied.
