SUNDAY TONIC: DO NOT TIE GOD'S HANDS


TOPIC: Do Not Tie God’s Hands.

TEXT: Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) – “for I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

There’s an account of a man who was dismissed from work out of conspiracy. Some of his colleagues conspired and set him up in 1997. He was reinstated to work this year with all his benefits (arrears), after 20 years of dismissal. It can only be God. He never gave up on God, but held steadfast on God’s promises.

Promises like, “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.” Joel 2:25

“For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.” Ishaiah 61:7

For every day you see, you’re in for possibilities; God has a reason for allowing you see this day. It’s abnormal to look sad or worried; if you do, you doubt God’s capacity in your life.

It doesn’t matter what you might be going through right now, the solution is older than the problem; God is the solution.

He is ahead of you right now preparing the next chapter of your life; He promised you in His Word to fight your battles. He promised you he will make ‘rivers in the desert.’  It means, He’ll prosper you even in the midst of recession.

Your business or job will not suffer in this recession. Maybe you’re seeing the contrary, but that’s not the reality. The reality is, you are prosperous in the midst of recession.  Believe it and you’ll see it happen to you.

God never promised us smooth sailing, but He promised us a safe landing. It may seem tough at the moment, but that’s not the end or who you are. Quit worrying and focus on what you want to see; you have the Almighty working out things for you. You will accomplish your goals and dreams sooner than expected.

May be you are saying, “I’ve had several failed businesses, I’ve been retrenched  from work, I’ve been sacked from work, I’m being denied promotion at my place of work, I just had a huge loss in my business, my Boss is troubling me or too difficult.

 I’m not making good sales in my business, my business is not growing, I’m looking for capital to start up my business idea,  I’ve been looking for a job without success,  I’m going through financial hardship, I’m having health challenges, and so on.

What you’re going through does not matter, what matters is that God is ahead of you, working out things in your favour.

It may look difficult for you to take your eyes off your challenges and focus on what you want, but focusing on what you want is the fastest way of putting God in action.

There are moments you’ll think God does not hear you. Relax! During an examination or test, the teacher is usually quiet.  When God is quiet, it means something is about to break forth.  God is always on time!

Remember the account of Abraham & Sarah, in Genesis 18 & 21. God promised them a son and went into a long silence, 25 years, but they held on to the promise. 

The Bible says of Abraham, Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, so shall thy seed be. Meaning, Abraham kept hoping even when it seemed as though there was no hope. Romans 4:18 (KJV).

What about the account of the Children of Israel and the Red sea? Nations at the time trembled at what God did for them at that instance.  It’s still a great mystery today.

Whenever circumstances seem impossible in your life, just focus on how God parted the red sea for the Israelites to go through; your faith in God is what makes your victory quicker.

Faith is rest. You’re being relaxed rather than being worried, because you know God will fix any challenge in your life.

My Dear, there is the human part of the solution and there’s also the God part. Do your part as human and leave the rest to God without worrying.  Worry ties the hand of God in your situation.

After playing your part and leaving the rest to God with confidence, God picks up from that point and fixes the challenge.

For me, in most cases, when I run from pillar to post with worries trying to fix a challenge, I barely get it done. But after running from pillar to post without results and I surrender to God, that’s when He shows up.  He doesn’t show up immediately, but when I’m calm, having surrendered totally to Him.

Have you ever thought of this? Everything, including the devil that terrorizes man is created by God. So, why not relax?

As you go about your endeavors this week, learn to put your trust in God and you will see His hand at work in your life. You are already out of that challenge, in Jesus’ name, Amen!

A CALL TO A NEW BIRTH:
Isaiah 59:1-2 says, Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

God will show up for you, if only you will turn from your iniquities and accept Christ as your personal Lord and savior. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus. Why not accept him now and see the hand of God upon your life?

It doesn’t matter what you have done in the past, He’ll cleanse you; no sin is too big for His cleansing blood.  Make up your mind now and pray this prayer:

Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, And I believe you died for me, I surrender my life to you this minute, Please come in and cleanse me with your blood, From now on, you are the master of my life.

I’m cleansed, I’m saved and I’m born again, until the day of your appearing, In Jesus’ name, Amen!
