Topic: God Is Still In Control [Sunday January 14th, 2018]
“And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.” Exodus 1:22 (KJV)
I come your way this beautiful day to make it abundantly clear that our God is still in absolute control. You don’t have any reason to panic in spite of what you see or hear. The God you serve is not wondering what to do. The last time I checked my Bible; He is still sitting on His throne and laughing at the devil.
Like I have always said and it bears repetition, you need to understand that God does not react. It is the devil that reacts. Whenever you see the devil’s activities on the increase, know that God has done something incredible which the devil cannot understand. You will recall that when Pharaoh decided to kill all the new-born babies in Egypt, it was intended to stop Moses – the appointed deliverer of God’s people. When Herod also decided to kill all the new-born babies in Bethlehem, it was because Jesus the Messiah had been born. Anytime you see satanic activities on the increase, it is not because God is in trouble. No! It is because He has already gone ahead to do something powerful. That is what makes the devil mad.
Beloved, God has already gone ahead of you to give you the victory. It doesn’t matter what the devil is doing around you. God does not play games. You may be going through some unpleasant experiences, but I want you to know that He has already gone ahead of you. Your part now is to rest in the finished work of Christ. Be fully persuaded that He is not a man to lie nor the son of man to repent. Know that whatever He has spoken concerning you will surely come to pass.
I declare that everything that once stood against you will fall for your sake. This year, you will sing your song and dance your dance. Settle it in your heart that God who did not spare His only begotten Son Jesus, but gave Him to you, will also through Him freely give you all things.
