Topic: You Are In Charge [Saturday October 21, 2017]
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:…” (Isaiah 9:6 KJV)
The world was in turmoil and in confusion, but God opened Isaiah’s eyes to see a revelation of the birth of His Son. The prophecy of the birth of Jesus was fulfilled when the angel of the Lord came to the shepherds and announced to them; For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10-11) The gulf of division and separation was created by the fall of man, but with the birth of Jesus, God decided to tabernacle with us, staying in our midst. Anger is over and we have a relationship with God.
So what should you expect? You must expect only good. Only good is permitted to come to your house. The bible says we have a hope that does not make us ashamed nor disappoint because the love of God is shed abroad in our heart. (Romans 5:5) God’s love is unconditional and irrevocable. The beautiful thing about the love of God is that it comes with blessing. He will just not love you; He favours you and ensures that wherever a lack exists in your life, the need is met. He deals with anything harassing you.
Jesus is the Head of the church. And the government is upon His shoulder. The bible also says that we have received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness to reign in life by Jesus Christ. So whatever is trying to move you off your position of authority is coming down. You are a ruler! Rule in the midst of your enemies. You are in charge. Isaiah gave us a revelation: the government shall be upon his shoulder. It will not be in the government house, the White house, or the Kremlin in Russia. The government will not be with occult people, nor with magicians or with idol worshippers. As believers His government is on our shoulders. Know it therefore, that when you appear they should run. You are in charge. Praise God!
