Hmmmm! In the very thing in which they boasted, Covid has humbled them!
The World in her entirety is humbled! That is, you and I!
The facts still remains that this season is the best ever for some people.
God is Sovereign!
God works in mysterious ways! Even when the world is set at disarray, God is setting up some people for greatness!
Friends, it is an individual thing! What do you see the Lord doing this season?
Isaac sowed in the land, during famine/ Covid/ distress, and reaped a thousand – Genesis 26:12
What do you see? What do you want to see happening for you, yours, your land and her people? Seek the face of God for your desired results by faith! Put faith to work! Take action! Voila! It is done? By God’s Holy Spirit.
2 Kings 13:14 Now Elisha had been suffering from the illness from which he died.
I am surprised that Elisha, with the double portion of Elijah’s anointing suffered from an illness. Elijah with half was taken to heaven. He did not die as all mortals die. Elisha is the man who’s dead bones gave back life to the dead!. Can you fathom that? God is Sovereign!
2 Kings 13:21Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man’s body into Elisha’s tomb. When the body touched Elisha’s bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet.
Remember, we are all human and subject to the frailty of the human condition. Like Paul, Timothy, you and I, including the man or woman you always run to for deliverance, we all are human and have issues. Period!
Let no man of God doom your faith with falsehood of a curse or curses upon your head, family, and so on. They have same in their families too!
Stop running helter-skelter! Seek the face of God for yourself, seek medical help, change your life style, and be optimistic!
2 Kings 13:3So the Lord’s anger burned against Israel, and for a long time he kept them under the power of Hazael king of Aram and Ben-Hadad his son.
4 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord listened to him,for he saw how severely the king of Aram was oppressing Israel. 5 The Lord provided a deliverer for Israel, and they escaped from the power of Aram. So the Israelites lived in their own homes as they had before.
Whenever Israel sin against the Lord, God allows them to be oppressed by their enemies. However, as soon as Israel repented of their sinful ways and ask God for mercy, God always heard and deliver them.
Friends, there are many things we have left undone for far too long. We have gotten used to oppression, and depression. They are not the norm. They need to go!
Our enemies have capitalized upon the disobedience of our hearts, and the ignorance of our being that we have not repented of. The enemy of our soul is using these to bamboozle us, oppress, malign, and cheat us of what rightly belong to us.
Our freedom to be, to be real, authentic, and truly live freely without encumbrance. To be our highest selves, dauntless, and bold in every, and all circumstances.
Now is the time to petition heaven, cry unto the Lord, seek for the favour of God like Jehoazah.
God is bound by His word, He will listen, He sees, and He will deliver. You can bank on this! God will deliver you!
Raise your voice unto the Lord today. He will send help!
Luke 16:27“He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.29″Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them. 30″‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent. 31″He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.'”
Do you know that, that someone did rise from the dead, and yet many still do not believe!!!
Friends, if you believe that Christ Jesus came walked this earth, died, and rose up, and is seated at the right hand of the Most High God, you should give God some praise.
Many people’s minds are blinded, cannot hear, see or perceive this great but simple truth!
Father in your mercy let every Vail shrouding people’s minds from receiving the simple truth of your Word be removed in Jesus mighty name!
Job 14:7-9 “At least there is hope for a tree: If it is cut down, it will sprout again, and its new shoots will not fail. 8 Its roots may grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, 9 yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant.
What scent does your life, situation, and circumstances need to sprout again?
Your specific need is different from mine, your neighbors, Pastors, Bishops, friends, and other believers.
Oh!, You think your Pastors, Bishops don’t have needs? They do, and if you are privy to others real needs you would be encouraged.
You have a need, I do, and every other person you know has needs.
Your case is not different, strange, special, or need more than faith in the Word of God, the name of Jesus, the blood of Jesus, plus the mercy of God to solve it!
There is nothing that has befallen you that is not common to man – 1 Corinthians 10:13. No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Do not let anyone corner you into believing falsehood. God is on your side.
The scent your life need is unwavering faith in the life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus. What He did on Calvary for you and I.
Moses at a time was cut down, Joseph, Hannah, Esther, Mordecai, Ruth, Naomi, Jesus himself, Paul, and Peter, and many more Saints were cut down, but at the scents of water they sprout up and are alive through their works even today.
Will you rise up from wherever you are to embrace Christ Jesus and all He already wrought for you?
Do not emphasize your human frailty more than what it is, and do not let any man or woman magnify the issues of your life for you to the point that you are blinded to what is attainable in Christ Jesus!
Jesus Christ! Faith in Jesus Christ! The leading of the Holy Spirit! Total reliance on the Sovereignty of the Almighty! And total commitment to believe in the capability of God to perform what He said He will do in you, through you will birth hope in you friends. Hope does not make ashamed! Romans 5:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart! Proverbs 3:5-6
An encounter with Jesus Christ is all you need to see vision – Acts 9:12. Saul had an encounter with Jesus on the way to Damascus. He prayed and saw a vision even before hands were laid on him by Ananias.
What a comfort this is!
Just a genuine encounter with Jesus, and you will never remain the same.
Acts 9:10 In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. The Lord called to him in a vision, “Ananias!”
“Yes, Lord,” he answered.
11 The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.”
13 “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem.
Your life will change for the better. Your story will change. Your life will be transformed by an encounter with the Lord Jesus, with the person of the Holy Spirit.
Seek for a touch from God today. Pray for an encounter and be transformed.
John 16:12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.15All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.
We have limitations in that we only see in part – 1 Corinthians 13:9-12
However, by the help of the Holy Spirit, God in His infinite mercy will prompt us per time to worship, pray, dance, dream, speak, keep silent, embrace, engage, withdraw, rest and so much more if only we ask for His help and wait for His guidance.
Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!
He knows all things and the secret things belong unto Him. You should lean on Christ Jesus more. Play safe!
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.
