“So it shall be, when the Lord your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant—when you have eaten and are full— then beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage” (Deut 6:10-12)
The promise of God is beyond imagination. God allowed His people to go into slavery, to stay ‘in the house of bondage’ for more than 400 years. But the promise was given to Abraham that they shall come out richer that they have entered Egypt. It is like a man who goes to prison for a crime he did not commit. He stays there isolated for over 40 years. The judge reviews his case and discovers that he was in fact innocent of the crime. The court says that he is now free. He entered prison as a young man. He is now an old man, with wasted his life and his dreams. He used to work in an office. He has no education and he has no money, for he could not work while in prison. His freedom is almost useless to him. Or so he thinks…
Suddenly, the judge announces that he shall receive the salary of a millionaire as a compensation for ‘the years the locusts have eaten’. He receives the keys of houses others have built, the ownership of lands that are rich with oil, gold and silver. He is now the landlord of vineyards and orchards famous all over the world. Even if he was free and did not go to prison, even if he worked daily at his office, he could not have made such a wealth in 40 years. The suffering in prison is seen now as a blessing, for God turns the tables around just to prove that He is God.
This is a spiritual principle: The more you suffer persecution ‘innocently’ for Christ sake, the more the devil locks you in a prison of circumstances, the greater compensation, reward and wealth you shall receive from God! This wealth is natural and spiritual, on earth and in heaven! That is one reason why we are commanded to give thanks in all circumstances!
You who suffer right now, you who are afraid and confused not knowing how the future will be, you who pray for a financial breakthrough for the bills are many, you who needs a marriage partner and none comes around, you who are sick and troubled and the doctor have no hope… TRUST GOD! TRUST GOD!
If you are a child of God, rejoice, for you have not seen the end of the story! Tomorrow may be very different than today! You are still breathing, so there is hope for you! God changes situations in less than a second, for all power belongs to Him! We serve the Living God, the faithful God! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
I have seen God performing these miracles of life so many times, that I can never doubt His Word again! If you laugh at my words and at my faith, I do not blame you, for I did the same in the past! But I have changed! I choose to believe the Word of God as my eyes see it in the Bible and my mind understands it! If God says yes, no man and no devil can say no! My faith in God makes me very happy! My faith is now my victory!
“This is my story; this is my song; praising my Savior, all the day long!”
Come and join the choir! Let’s make God happy, for He is our Praise!
In Christ I declare:
I breathe, so I praise God!
I rejoice for my victory is coming!
Things will change! Suddenly! I know! I believe!
I shall own houses and fields!
I shall work little and make a lot of money, for my time and energy is needed for ministry!
As for me and my household, we shall serve the Lord!
I give You thanks!
All glory to God!
In Jesus name
