Tag: God’s help
Sometimes we may be going through difficulties and not know where to turn. Let us be reminded that we have a God who is “our refuge & strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psa.46:1). He also said in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Heb. 13:5).
He is the same God who miraculously prevented Daniel and his friends from burning in the furnace (Daniel 6) and who answered the prayer of the saints on behalf of Peter so that he was miraculously released from prison (Acts 12). He is also the same God who came to earth as Christ through a miraculous birth, so that the inheritance of his people Israel would be extended to anyone who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. If Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Saviour it is not too late, there is a miraculous life awaiting you!
He is also the God who never forgets your faithfulness to Him; many have toiled and laboured and some times wonder when they will either be healed from a particular sickness or receive answers to certain prayers which would change your situation for the better.
In fact some of you have been waiting on God through prayer for the fulfilment of prophecies spoken over your lives. “When LORD! when” is your desperate cry! But God is saying there are things that have to take place first and as you stay close to Him, He will give you understanding. Patience and perseverance in the place of worship regardless of the circumstance is what God is calling us all to.
Be encouraged today! In Christ a miraculous life is guaranteed!
In Him :
In the holy place
we seek His face,
there He appears to
wipe away our tears.
In our hearts
we call His name,
there flows His fountain
that heals our pain.
no more tears,
no more pain.

“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”
(Phil 4:13 NLT)
We often quote this verse but if we spent time to meditate on it, we will realise how powerful it is and we would declare it with much more conviction. We know that if we depend on Christ to help or guide us in whatever we do, then this means that we do not do it without his strength.
As believers in Jesus, the Holy Spirit dwells within us and this means the unmatchable power of Almighty God is enabling us to live supernaturally natural lives. This is God’s strengths, enabling us to believe that what is impossible for us is possible for God and what we have lost, He is able to restore and bless us exceeding above more than we can ask God or think. We are strengthened in our faith to believe him for miracles not just for ourselves but also for others. When we live in partnership with God in the Spirit, we remain empowered or strengthened, able to gain supernatural knowledge or revelation of God’s wisdom.
“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” (Eph. 3:20 NLT).
As we know, we serve a God of relationship and therefore whatever we desire Him to do for us, He desires to do it with us whenever it is possible, teaching and healing us in the process where necessary.
Romans 8:11 also comes to mind:“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” (NLT).
Having the life of God as well as actively partnering with Him in obedience, it is inevitable that we develop the knowledge of God’s nature and what He requires from us. This knowledge strengthens us, so that we can do exploits (Daniel 11:32) to the glory of His name.
There is nothing you cannot do,
if God is the author of it
and approves of it.
So go do it!
