FOR HIS GLORY!

Oct 29, 2021

The God we have given our lives and seek makes all things beautiful in His time ( Ecclesiastes 3:11 ).

We must believe and come to that place of rest in Him that He knows what He is doing.

Matthew 6:27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

Learn to trust God even when you don’t know how it’s going to work out because He is in charge of the events in your life.

John 11:1,4,6 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. When Jesus heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” So, when He heard that he was sick, He stayed two more days in the place where He was.

God in His agenda wanted a greater glory to come out of the sickness while the two sisters wanted Lazarus to be healed.

The healing of Lazarus would have been good but could not be compared to the glory of his resurrection.

Sometimes all you need is to let go of everything and commit it to Him. He may not do it the way you think but He will often come through.

God lead the children of Israel having delivered them from Egypt down the path where there was a red sea at the front and enemies pursuing them from behind ( Exodus 14 ).

God would have used another path but He chose the way of the red sea because He is always aware of what He is doing in and with you.

Exodus 14:11 Then they said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt?

God knew what to do however much the children of Israel didn’t.

Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.

God is committed to fulfilling every word, vision, and prophecy even though they may not come to fulfillment the way you think.

Regardless of the enemy’s set up of the red sea and the experienced army pursuing the children of Israel, God called them to be still and trust in Him.

Exodus 14:13 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.

God set a separation between them and the enemy persuing them (Exodus 14:19). The enemy could not come closer however much he tried.

Job 1:10 Have You not made a hedge around him,…

God was working the whole night so that the children of Israel could cross the red sea and when morning came, there was a way.

Psalms 30:5 Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

There are things that we prayed for but haven’t manifested. You only need to release your faith and trust in Him.

Rest and give thanks knowing that their manifestation will bring greater glory as that manifested when God delivered the children of Israel from their enemies.

What the enemy experienced was reported throughout Canaan land. God wants a testimony that will cause every other enemy trying to pursue you to retreat because of how God delivered you.

He never runs out of ways!
Rest, believe, and have faith in Him. The way He delivered you yesterday is not the same way He will deliver you today.

When the children of Israel led by Joshua were faced with a similar challenge when Moses had died, they crossed river Jordan using the ark of the convenant as the miracle-working instrument.

Joshua 3:15,17 And as those who bore the ark came to the Jordan, and the feet of the priests who bore the ark dipped in the edge of the water (for the Jordan overflows all its banks during the whole time of harvest), Then the priests who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan, and all Israel crossed over on dry ground until all the people had crossed completely over the Jordan.

Don’t borrow experiences (formulas). Trust in the God who gives the instructions.

When Elijah was confronted with the same Jordan, he took his mantle and struck the water and Jordan parted (2Kings 2:8,14).

Jesus walked on water (Matthew 14:24,25).

God doesn’t deal with experiences and formulas. He has got a thousand ways to get you to the other side and bring deliverance to you but He will look for what will bring in the most glory in every situation.

The fact that it has not happened when you expected doesn’t mean God has given up on you. Keep in faith, holding and trusting in Him.

Romans 10:11 “Whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.”

There is a way for whatever represents a water problem in your life.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.!
