God shows his might through your problems

2015-05-20 06:00

“GOD is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.” Psalm 46:1-2

When we buy a car, we do not discard the car just because it jumps into a pothole. We do not say, I did not expect this car to get into a pothole and therefore get rid of the car. Trouble in marriage and finances are potholes, they are momentary and will soon ease out.

Once we have the mechanism and understanding of the Kingdom, we will expect these things. If we are looking for joy, weeping must precede joy as the Bible says in Psalm 30:5: “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

Once we have knowledge of the kingdom, nothing shakes us, because, we ourselves are shakers.

There is a difference between knowledge and understanding. Understanding is independent of knowledge. Let the joy of the Lord become our strength, as our problems are what showcase God’s power.

If for example, there is no barenness then there is no opportunity to showcase the power of God.

When a person with the kingdom of God lays hands on a barren woman, power changes hands and the contrary kingdom is cast out. While we are on earth, problems will exist, but no condition is permanent.

Why do we have problems and how are we able to remove them? What are problems? What is the modus operandi of every problem? Every problem we have is God’s programme.

God’s programme is man’s problem. God does not cry, He does not get tired; men get tired at every blockade, we get tired as that is our nature. We are weak, but God is not.

Prayer Point: Every demon whispering to me and causing me not to do Your will, Lord, cast it out of me, in Jesus’s name.

Wow: “When you do not know the Bible, you do not know life.”
