DELIVERANCE, “WORTH CONSIDERING” (Across my desk today.)
“And in an instant, suddenly, you shall be visited and delivered by the Lord of hosts…” (Isaiah 29:5–6, AMPC)
God Is On Your Side
Throughout the Bible, we have examples of how God suddenly showed Himself strong on behalf of His people. But sometimes when we’ve struggled in an area for a long time, it’s easy to just give up and accept things the way they are. One of the enemy’s favorite lies is to tell you that nothing is ever going to change. He’ll tell you that you’re never going to get well, that your marriage isn’t going to work out, that you’re never going to break that addiction. But it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been in those circumstances, God can change things in an instant! In a split second of time, He can turn it all around. One touch of God’s power can heal your body. One touch of His favor can promote you. One touch of His goodness can solve that problem. Just one touch from Almighty God can instantly change your life.
I encourage you today, keep believing, keep standing, and keep hoping. Don’t let the enemy drag your thoughts down because God is working behind the scenes. Your time is coming, and I declare that your breakthrough is going to happen suddenly—in an instant!
A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, I choose to trust that You are working things out for my good. I choose to stand in faith, believing that my season of breakthrough is coming. Give me Your strength and peace as I patiently wait on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
Of course my first thought was, YES, I Like That Concept. Of course the bottom line question is: Am I , for sure on my growing edge and on HIS side? Usually, Deliverance comes as we are at a total loss as to what to do or what to say and teetering on the edge of a mossy dam. When I was a kid we use to swim at the fish hatchery on Elkhorn Creek and there was just such a cement dam covered with green very slippery moss. And every once in a while some one would go over into the rocks about 10′ below and get banged up. And the creek was also full of copper head snakes that we would need to watch out for. Love to catch little turtles there with the rainbow shell on their tummy. But walking across that dam was a stressful experience. And our lives are full of that kind of stuff almost every day. And on those times that we seem to be headed over the dam, some how, if we have faith, we find our balance in the LORD and are delivered. Obvious, best to stay away from such places. But sometimes they come knocking at our door with no invitation at all. So best to be on our growing edge and keep our faith level high and maxed out.
Also there is a strong unity of the faith in the bond of peace when folks come together. There is a special synergy of God’s power that is available that is greater than the sum of the parts. It is like Jesus is with us in a very special way in power to help folks get set free. So we need to get together where that kind of unified faith is possible. Paul teaches about it very clearly to Timothy in 2 Tim.3:5, so if interested, get out your Bible and again read 2 Timothy chapter 3 and especially verse 5. “One shall put a 1,000 to flight and 2 shall put 10,000 to flight….” We need to gather at least once a week where folks believe in the supernatural presence and deliverance of God. And that HE want’s us to be a whole and healthy people full of the Holy Spirit, today even as yesterday. His love and ministry to and for us, never changes.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
