Beloved, Welcome to another beautiful day. Beautiful day it is despite whatever you may be going through that may not be up to your expectation. Beautiful day it has to be for you as long as your God is on the throne. How do I know - He makes all things beautiful in His time. And all the Time belongs to our God. He created time and eternity. One more thing, God also knows how to make all things to work together for good and in your favour (Rom 8: 28). We are the one who see things as they unfold, your Father in heavens knows the end from the beginning. God knows and He's got you covered. So beloved, welcome to a beautiful day.
I will also like to commiserate with the Nation on the death of 2 prominent leaders in an helicopter crash over the weekend. Painful, shocking and avoidable are some expressions in the news. The Lord will comfort the families and all of us. My only word is nothing is hidden before our God. We pray God grant them eternal rest. Death is only a vehicle of transition to the next realm - the destination is much more important. Let's prepare for our time of transition as well.
John 1: 1 - 5 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Gen 1: 1 - 3, 31a 'In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, let there be light; and there was light. 31a - and God saw everything that he had made and behold, it was very good.
Acts 15: 18 'Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
Psalm 139: 12 - 16 'Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day; the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. For thou hast possessed my reins; thou hast covered my soul in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance yet being unperfect and in the book, all my members were written, which is continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
From the above scriptures, I will like to highlight five (5)points;
1. You are a definite and unique, carefully crafted (wrought) creature of God, not an accident or a contraption. God made you for a particular purpose - you are made FIT for purpose. It's important therefore that you do not allow anyone, anything or any situation to diminish your God given agenda.
2. Although the forces of darkness may rant and try to manipulate, alter or derail God's purpose for your life, you have an assurance that darkness can never comprehend the light. You are of your Father, the Father of Lights, therefore, all activities of darkness CANNOT and must not derail God's agenda for you (John 10; 10)
3. Has something be stolen in the past? You have lost some virtues? Some precious things? You have experienced some delays? Do you think you lost out on some opportunities? You have a God who is delighted in restoration. All your members (physical, spiritual, and all the things that belong to you - ALL) are ever before Him. All your members are in the manufacturer's (God) manual. All you need is to place a demand and order from the manufacturer's storehouse.
4. You are a fearful and wonderful creation of the Lion of the tribe of Judah. A Lion does not struggle to roar; the sun does not struggle to shine. You are made in the image of your Father in Heaven, therefore, you must shine. Even now, I command, Arise, Shine, Manifest and fulfil Destiny in Jesus mighty Name, Amen.
5. Darkness and light are both alike to your God. Those trying to turn your daylight to night are only wasting their time - Day or Night, nothing, nobody and no power can stop the glory of God to be risen upon you. The soldiers and the big rock could not stop Jesus. You are unstoppable.
Beloved, as it was in the beginning, you have no reason to worry. Now you have the understanding. Note that 'Understanding is key to re-possessing your possession'. Acts 15; 18.
I believe you have been armed this morning with enough armoury to place a demand upon the Heavens for definite restoration.
What are you waiting for? It's time to pray!!!
Pray Now so that you may not be preyed upon.
Shalom and Blessings!!!
