Read 2 Chronicles 20:1-23
And said: “O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You?” (2 Chronicles 20:6-7)
It is no gainsaying that God controls the affairs of humanity. There are more than enough evidences in the Bible to authenticate this truth. He is in absolute control of this world and the one to come. When it was time to set the captive Israelite free, the powerful (powerless) Pharaoh could not withstand Him. God wasted him alongside his army (Exo. 14:26-29).
King Jehoshaphat and his kingdom were billed to be captured by enemies of God, but they had confidence in God; they remembered what He had done for their fathers. Because He is in control, He did what was to be done and His people were victorious (Psa. 44:4-7). We should have this same confidence in God when we feel attacked.
The young slave Daniel was freed from the lion’s den by this Mighty God, regardless of the efforts of the powerful kingdom. Why? He controls times and seasons. Hence, He knows the best way to deliver His people in any situation. Whatever your experiences might be, His deliverance will surely come. He is not known for abandoning His people.
The sons of Korah, the temple assistants, confessed that, it is God who commanded victory for Israel. Trust in God. He delivers His people. He drove pagan nations out of the Promised Land and gave it to His people. He has capacity to do as promised. Are you His? You are not qualified, if you are not one of his. Ensure your relationship with Him is not made ineffective by sin. He will never let you down.
1. Father, silence everything that is waging war against my home, family, business and ministry in Jesus’ name.
2. Send the very help I need to me now, O Lord.
3. Lord, You are the Governor of all nations, please visit the economy of this nation with Your miracle.
