14 “ For this is God, our God forever and ever; He will be our guide, even to death.”
Today’s Inspiration: God is forever guiding us until we depart from this Earth to live in eternity with Him. Psalm 48:14. He is our everlasting God, everlasting redeemer of our souls and everlasting joy. Why should we fear in times of adversity when iniquity of our foes surround us? He is the everlasting light that shines our way out of darkness. At the end of the tunnel is always a light to guide us out of darkness.
Adam’s fall caused God’s purpose to bring forth a reconciled church to restore it to its original design and to a better destiny. Satan can never catch up with what God is doing for the Body of Christ. We need a Divine realignment in times of trial.
Our work is meant to destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8. Christ has authorized us to do so. The devil divides but God unites. A kingdom that is divided cannot stand. Don’t resign to fate as being the will of God. Many Christians make this mistake. His will is to provide salvation and to deliver the oppressed.
Do not think that redemption is only for the future whilst moral transformation is for the present. This is not the focus and understanding of the early church. They believed in the present power not only for moral change but also authority over demonic influence. They remain focused on Christ’s work. God’s love for mankind is so rich that He did not perish Adam and Eve’s rebellion but instead accept them in His grace and covenant that the woman’s seed shall bring forth new light.. Therefore like Jesus we will not let the unsaved perished but saved them from death to life by His grace.
By virtue of Christ’s authority in Matthew 28:18, powers of hell have been conquered and Christians now walk in authority and power over death in all its forms- spiritual, emotional and physical. Why we cannot walk in victory despite being a Christian lies with our mind always conceiving a defeated spirit without taking in the promises of Psalm 47:3 He subdued people under us and Nations under our feet. He chooses our inheritance for us. We have victory in Christ as we daily carry the cross and follow Him. Miracles comes from within us. They are never external virtue.
Prayer: Lord the shield of the earth belong to You. So we exalt you to the highest place far above the heavens and the earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
