Memorise: For he spake, and it was done; he commanded and it stood fast. Psalm 33:9
Bible in one year: 2 Peter 1-3
Acts 15:18 says God already knows everyone He has created ever before the foundation of the world. Sometime ago, a lady was told by the doctors that she could never have a child because her womb was too small. Whenever she conceives, at the fifth month of her pregnancy, she experiences a miscarriage. So she wrote us and we prayed for her and the Lord said we should tell her that she will have children. We knew God cannot lie so we expected that God would fulfil His word by giving her children one at a time. But when she became pregnant, at delivery time, she delivered four children - two boys and two girls. While we were seeing one baby, God had already seen four. Are you poor today? God is seeing you in great wealth. Are you marginalised or treated as someone very insignificant today? God is seeing you as a very important personality - one that cannot be ignored. Pray that the good future that only God can see concerning you should come to reality in your life.
Moreover, when the Lord Jesus would heal the man at the pool of Bethesda recorded in John 5:2-9, He said, Rise! This tells us that God rules by decrees. Thank God that He is not a democrat. If God were to consult your friends before saving, healing, or blessing you, their feedback might have stopped Him. How many people want their friends to join the club of billionaires while they are still living in penury? Not many! And because God rules by decrees, He does not ask if the unpleasant situation is ready to let you go. He simply commands it to go. According to today's reading, when God commands, it is done. When He says rise, nothing and nobody can keep you down. When He says let there be light, no darkness can prevent the light from coming to be. Today, the Lord is saying this to you: Arise, Get up from that wheel chair! The Lord is saying, Arise from obscurity! Get up from sorrow and shame! Rise up from your down trodden position! It is your season of joy!
Action point: Pray that every negative decree against you and everything yours would be cancelled and that God's good decrees over your life will come to pass.
