When I think of the goodness of the Lord, and all He has done for me; my very soul shall shout Halleluyah....Praise God for loving me. Truly, we serve a living and faithful God and if we do not owe Him anything - we owe Him our Praise.
When you think about the fact that the road others passed through and didn't come back; the trip others embarked on and never returned; the labour ward others went to and didn't come out; the food others ate and choked; the game others played and turned to sadness, the business others did and became bankrupt...etc. You really have every reason to give thanks.
This is the crux of our meditation this morning. I know there are several things that could be this year that aren't in place. And following from our yesterday meditation, there is a likelihood for man to focus on what is not excessively and in the process forgets to appreciate God for what He's done all through the year.
Phil 1; 6 'Being confident of this very thing, that He who has began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.
Heb 10: 35 'therefore, do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
I John 5; 14 - 15 'Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have our petitions that we have asked of Him.
Eph 3: 12 'In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith in Him.
Beloved, we have about 13 more days (today inclusive) for this year to end. 13 days is too much for God to settle your matter. Don't forget your Angels are on stand by; to work overtime if needed to ensure your joy is full and cup of blessing overflows.
A crucial requirement to fast tracking your miracle this season and anytime is your confidence in God. Your confidence in His word. Heb 11;6b says 'for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Go ask those who compete for limited opportunities and positions - confidence play a key role. Cast your mind back to the last 100 metres final you watched - recall the confidence of the winner most of the time. The same confidence is key to receive from the Lord.
God is still in the business of settlement. As a matter of fact, He has loads of miracles for each blessed day. (Ps 68:19). The portion that gets allocated to you is a function of your confidence and your requests to God.
Matt 8: 1 - 3. Jesus said to the leper. I am willing be cleansed.
I have good news for you. Jesus is willing, he is able, he has capacity, and capability, he has the wisdom, the power, the authority, the resources, the provisions and above all the compassion to meet you at your point of it. As a matter of fact, as many as will cry for help, He will not cast away.
With Jesus everything is still possible.
Beloved, you can still receive that breakthrough;
That healing is still possible;
A change of job is still possible:
That price charming can still show up before the end of the year;
That door can still be opened before the end of the year;
That debt can still be paid before the end of the year;
That proposal can still come true...that spiritual battle can and shall be over before this year ends because the Egyptian that you see today, you shall not see them again.
As long as Jesus is on the throne and you keep your confidence in Him, it is still possible.
Awesome God, we have confidence in you. Arise and settle us Now. Command settlement for all those holding on to you word today. Thank you Jesus.
Thank you Lord.
Shalom and Blessings!!!
