|Keep "oil in your lamp" by daily fellowship with the Lord|
There is nothing that is outside of His reach. There is nothing His eye does not behold or His ear not able to hear. God’s mighty arm is stretched out over the nations of the world.
With the rise of demonically driven terrorist groups who threaten anyone outside the sphere of their beliefs…from Syria and Iraq, to Europe and the United States; GOD HAS A WAY THROUGH IT ALL.
REMEMBER HIS MARVELOUS WORKSGenesis tells us that Abraham was nicely settled with his family in Ur of the Chaldeans. Yet, the Lord told him to leave his country, his family, and his father’s house and go to a new land, which he would be shown once he left town! Abraham was the starting place of God’s ultimate plan for restoration and through him all the families of the earth would be blessed. He went out not knowing where he was going…but God had a way through it all.
Moses was told that he would be the one to deliver the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt by speaking to the very ruler who had kept them in oppression, yet Moses could barely speak….but God had a way through it all. The promise of God to Moses was, “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.”
Joshua, the successor of Moses, would lead Israel across the Jordan and into the land they were promised. They would have many enemies to conquer in the process. Joshua was told not to fear, but to be strong and courageous…because God had a way through it all.
Esther saw herself as an orphan, but God saw her as a queen who would deliver His people amidst great hostility.
David learned that God was able to turn his mourning into dancing and clothe him with gladness even though David faced many a foe.
In the New Testament, a man with a withered hand stretched out that hand, and it was restored as whole as the other hand.
A dead girl was raised up at the words of Jesus.
Seas were calmed, demons were cast out, conflicts were resolved, thousands were fed by a small boy’s lunch being multiplied and the disciples of Jesus were told that mountains could be moved if faith was present.
How can it all be? Because God has a way through everything!
THE LORD REIGNSHe is the King of the Ages.
He is the King of Heaven.
He is the King of Glory.
He is the One who brings the counsel of the nations to nothing and makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
His counsel stands forever and the plans of His heart to all generations.
He is the one of who rides on the Heavens, who makes a way in the desert, who speaks to the wind and the waves and they are still, who stands as a shield about His people, who numbers the hairs of your head and says you are of more value than many sparrows.
This is the One who promises that, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you for I am the Lord your God.” Isaiah 43:2
He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might He increases strength.
Yes, God has a way through everything.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER
- Operate from your place of origin which is as a representative of another domain, the domain of Heaven. You are a citizen of Heaven and a joint heir with Christ.
- Keep "oil in your lamp" by daily fellowship with the Lord.
- Live from a position of peace and rest.
- Pray, knowing that if it exists in Heaven it can be brought to earth.
- Live as a carrier of His Presence.
KNOW THAT GOD HAS A WAY THROUGH IT ALL!!
