Matthew 6 vs 34 – Therefore do not worry about tomorrow , for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for today Is its own trouble. The bible talks of God’s thoughts towards us in Jeremiah 29 vs 11 as thoughts of peace , and not of evil, to give us an expected end or a hope and future. God has always wanted a relationship with his children . The bible says in Revelations 4 vs 11 that all things were created for His pleasure in other words He created us because it pleased Him. The book of 1 John 3 vs 1 says behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed up on us, that we should be called the children of God.
As a Father , the Lord wants the best for all His children. According to Psalm 35 vs 27, He delights in the prosperity of His own. From time to time , He gives His children a glimpse of their future . Many a times , they are hard to comprehend and look impossible .For example the Lord told Gideon in Judges 6 vs 13 -14 that He has given the Midianites to him, all he needed to do was just gather an army to go and claim victory. Gideon gathered thirty thousand men to fight against the Midianites. On his way to war , the Lord of Host decided to trim Gideon’s army from thirty thousand to three hundred. His faith began to shake , three hundred men against a nation? God knew that Gideon was struggling so he told him not worry that He was just trimming down the army because He did not want the soldiers to think they won the war by their hands and besides some of the soldiers were afraid -Judges 7 vs 1-7. By the time Gideon got to close his heart sank, the Midianites came with the Amalekites and all the men of the east. They were going to fight an army as numerous as locust and their camels were without number, as sand by the the sea shore – Judges 7 vs 12 . There was no faith left in Gideon , the Most High had to tell him to go to near the camp of the Midianites to hear what the Midianites were saying about the war just to help His faith – Judges 7 vs 8-16. This did not work so the Lord advised him to take his servant Purah with him to the camp just to encourage His faith.
When Jesus told Peter in Matthew 16 vs 18 that He was going to build the church on him, he was shocked and afraid just like many are afraid of becoming a minister of God. Jesus was putting the efforts of three years into the hands of Peter. When you look at Peter and the picture Jesus was painting ,it was miles apart . When it comes to praying , the last person you will consider as a prayer partner was Peter , Jesus had to scold him in Luke 14 vs 37 that he could not pray for an hour. Peter had failed in the only vocation he knew. All he knew to do was fish,and he even failed at that -Luke 5 vs 5 .He lacked leadership skills , Jesus was trying to encourage his disciples that they will be made to stumble but they should be strong in Matthew 26 vs 22-32 ,He said not me ,all may forsake you but not me trying to talked down on his colleagues. Peter was very violent and aggressive. Peter could not go out without carrying a sword. When they came to arrest Jesus , he took out a sword and cut someone’s ear – John 18 vs 10. Imagine Peter , the leader to be carrying sword around with him to defend himself. Sometimes the Lord tells us our future and we disagree . Such was the case of Peter, a man who could not go out without carrying sword to a minister of the gospel . Sarah was not trying to be rude when she laughed, actually she was filled with anger. When the visitors said she was going to be a mother at age of ninety – Genesis 18 vs 11.If the food was nice then a compliment would have sufficed not a promise that she was going to give birth. The bible described Sarah’s womb as dead in Romans 4 vs 19 and to look at such an elderly woman and tell her she would be a mother again could make her angry.
The reason why Gideon did not get angry when he was called a mighty man of valor was because he was been addressed by an angel. How can you call a man who the bible categorically stated that he was threshing wheat in the wine-press to hide from his enemies ( Midianites) a mighty man of valor – Judges 6 vs 11-12. A mighty man of valor , a man who who by all imagination was a coward. Imagine someone who could not look into the eyes of his fathers brethren been asked to go in his mighty hands to deliver a nation. The Lord asked Gideon to take out all his father’s idols in Judges 6 vs 25-31 . Gideon was so scared he had to take ten of his servants along with him in case something happened. The bible said out fear he carried out this task by night. Immediately he finished he ran away. By the time the men of the city came to his house he was gone, the poor father had to defend him. By now you will have an idea who Gideon was . When Elisha told the King of Israel that in the 24 hours there will be abundance ,the officer whose hand the king leaned on said if the Lord open the windows of heaven that was impossible – 2Kings 7 vs 2 . One could hardly blame the officer ,because the famine was so severe. The children of Israel suddenly became cannibals. The rich were eating bird dropping and the poor who could not afford anything resulted to eating their children -2 Kings 6 vs 25-30.
God delivered the Midianites and the host of the Amalekites into the hands of Gideon. Gideon ended up as man who a whole nation began to beg to rule them because of his bravery. Today we remember Gideon as a judge of Israel not a coward who could not look into people’s face. When we talk of Peter , what comes to mind is Acts 5 vs 15, a man so anointed that his shadows healed the sick not the disciple with the disciples who could not go out unless he carried a sword with him in case something happened. The country Israel is a proof that Sarah actually became a mother . Israel enjoyed abundance just has Elisha had prophesied. That which the Lord has promised , He will bring it to pass. That vision or dream He showed you will surely come to fruition. It might look difficult or impossible,you might take an inventory of the resources at your disposal or your location or your age or the medical reports or your past achievements and conclude that the dream will not com to pass , but I can assure you that God will fulfill that which He has promised. You will give birth, you will get married, that business will not fail, that ministry will touch the whole world,you will not die ,you will live to give testimony about your healing in the name of Jesus, Amen .
That plan of God for your life will surely come to fruition. The Lord said in Isaiah 46 vs 11 that as far as He has said it , He will bring it to pass. As far has He has purposed it , He will do it. No one can stop God, not a man ,not a demon talk less of any power . The Lord that made Sarah to conceive is still alive. The bible calls Him the Unchangeable in Malachi 3 vs 6a . It does not matter the no of oppositions of you have in that place of work just hold on to the word of the Lord. The Lord who promised you a child is so powerful He can bring children out a rock according to Luke 3 vs 8 . The One that has promised to fight for you is the One who Isaiah 1 vs 24 describes as the Lord of Host , the Mighty of One of Israel. The Most High God wants me to tell you that, that which He has promised , He will surely bring to the pass because He said in Isaiah 14 vs 27 that He has purposed it and no one can annul it, His hands are stretched out to help you and no can turn it back.
The Lord of the whole universe wants me to tell you that the bible refers to Him in Isaiah 25 vs 4 As a strength to the poor, Strength to the needy in his distress, A refuge from the storm, A shade from heat and that is what He will be for you in Jesus might name, Amen. Psalm 18 vs 2 calls Him our Rock, Fortress,Deliverer, Strength in whom we trust, Horn of our Salvation and a Stronghold. Brethren do not give room today to any though worries of fear because our God is Able, Capable, Dependable,Unquestionable and His wisdom is unsearchable. According to Isaiah 41 vs 14, do not fear for he will help you. What kind of help do you require? Do you want Him to strengthen you and uphold you with His righteous right hand, He will do just that according to Isaiah 41 vs 10 ;Do you want those who are angry at you to be ashamed and disgraced? Consider it done – Isaiah 41 vs 11 ; You want those who war against you to just disappear with no trace , he will do it according to Isaiah 41 vs 12. He is ready to hold your right hand if you are scared – Isaiah 41 vs 13 . He will carry you according to Isaiah 46 vs 4,He will go before you and behind you according to Isaiah 58 vs 8.He can surround you like a mountain – Psalm 125 vs 2 , He can watch over your coming in and going out – Psalm 121 vs 8 .Whatever you want He can do it. Have you been praying for an increase in your ministry,you want the Lord to increase your members He can also do that too. According to Isaiah 56 vs 8 , He can gather people to a place besides those are already present. He also gathers out of great mercy – Isaiah 54 vs 7 .Do you want a new job well according to Isaiah 51 vs 22-23 , He can take cups of sadness out of ones hands and put cups of joy. He will take the cup of unemployment and give you the cup employment. Are you lacking ideas or creativity in that project He will give you the cup of creativity today. Have you lost battles and failed ? My Father and my God will decorate you as Warrior and a winner – Isaiah 54 vs 11-12 .Are your enemies too strong well He can simply reduce their strength and increase your strength like He did for the enemies of the King of Assyria in Isaiah 37 vs 26-27 .Are you single and seeking a life partner well He can bring a good partner to you because the bibles says in Isaiah 54 vs 7 that he brings people to place out a mercy. He will bring a gentleman to your heart or a proverbs 31 woman to your life in Jesus might name.
The only thing required of you is to be willing and obedient. The bible says in Isaiah 1 vs 19-20 that if you are willing and obedient , you shall eat the good of the land but if you are not the end will be a disaster. According to Psalm 23 vs 5, He is laying a table before you today. Are you willing to eat ? The Lord will never force anything on anyone. He said in Deuteronomy 30 vs 19 , I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses: therefore chooses life,that you may live and your seed. The Lord can only advise , he can make your mind for you. I have seen churches who could not afford a church building , buy an auditorium during recession, that’s divine provision. I have seen people get get promotion where others are made redundant, it is God. Everything we will be fine just obey . The first step to obedience is to give ones life to Christ.
Romans 6 vs 1 says it is impossible to continue in and expect to grace to abound. Where you once a believer and you backs-lidded? Jesus wants you back . The bible said in Romans 3 vs 23 that for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 6 s 23 says For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. The gift was explained in John 3 vs 16 , For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. What shall we do to be save ? The bible says in Romans 10 vs 9 that if you confess with your mouth , Jesus is Lord , and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10 vs 10 – For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with our mouth that you confess and are saved.
Pray this prayer from your heart today! Dear Jesus , I believe that You died for me and rose again on the third day. I confess I am a sinner. I need your love and forgiveness. Come into my heart . Forgive my sins. I receive Your eternal life. Confirm You love by giving me peace, joy and supernatural love for others, Amen.
